Hmm it is the G shape. I bar strings 2 thru 4 and add typically the 5th string (2 frets up) or 6th string. Or, like I said, I add some other variation like the m7 on the 6rh string. Maybe I don't see the CAGED thingy as rigidly as others, to me it's just riffing on shapes. After all the open chords are just that, open chords, so you have to either add a bar or do something else to make it work. Regardless of the system, it's just one way to learn new chord shapes and versions, especially for those who don't know theory.
Love this thread!!!
For anyone who wants to learn basic guitar (music) theory and application in an understandable easy to follow manner:
Justinguitar .com has ebooks that you can download and print out. If there is a cost it is reasonable.
These will teach (with fretboard diagrams) most everything here ...without grappling with heavy theory. No CAGED, no obscure terminology, etc. tells you how to actually USE this stuff.
He calls it “Really Useful Guitar Stuff”
1) Practical Music Theory (part 1)
2) Chord construction Guide (part 2)
3) Master The Major Scale
This last comes with DVD lessons (or a series of online lessons.
If you’re not familiar with the major scale, it is the basis for everything. The ROOT of it all !!!
