C major chord and different positions

By filling in these illustrations, you will begin to learn the position of every note on the guitar fretboard. You will begin to see how everything repeats and all the different patterns.
 

The first illustration below shows seven different ways to play the C chord up to the 17th fret. You can use the blank illustrations supplied to fill in all the chords of C major all over the fretboard. You can also use the blank forms to fill in different guitar scales and modes. Use an illustration to fill in the Aeolian scale in different locations. 

Each circle below shows the C chord played at a different position. Each C chord is played using a different type of chord. For Example, the first C chord is played in the open position. The next C chord is played using the Root 5 A type bar chord. The next C chord is played using the G type bar chord. The next is played using the Root 6 type bar chord. Begin to see how the C chord is situated over each scale position.
