Moving the G chord form will wrap up all of the CAGED chord forms. The G form is similar to the C form, in that it has a R-3 for the 'base' of the chord (6-5 strings). We are playing 'back' (towards the nut) from the root on string 6. In practice, we often leave the 6 string root out of the chord and play just the inside 4 strings (5-4-3-2) for the Major type chord (this slash chord version is shown below). Once we get into a shape, it can be shifted to every position. 12 things, for knowing 1 = good mileage. And, like all of the CAGED forms, it is also commonly broken down into other usable pieces.
For the tablature, the big numbers are frets, the little numbers are fingers. The red diagonal line is that an active finger in the first chord is moving to a new location in the second. Empty strings are inactive. When we see a 1 finger in the tablature on the nut, this is showing us the fingering that will move onto the board. This isn't necessary, just a way to understand how the shape is configured, based on the nut.We can use the 3 and 2 fingers on the 6-5 strings and add the pinky on the root on string 1, but this might just be too much work. Yet, it is possible.
