So I'm learning all scales now and I'm wondering if I should go ahead and try to learn them in all possitions or learn 1st possition and then once I get that down start moving up the neck. What would be easier in the long run?

learn 1 in each position.. this will help you with your solo playing.. knowing where all the notes are in a pentatonic scale for instance.. you have the knowledge to create a solo in it =]

Learn one scale at a time, and start with the most important one which is the major scale....have a read of Josh Urban's Crusade articles in the columns section - don't just learn shapes, make sure you take the time to understand why those shapes exist and when you can use them.

Learning a load of bits of scales isn't going to be particularly helpful in the long run.

promptness, clarity , accuracy,flunecy and eveness

Basically what he said, learn the basic scales first (major, minor) and go from there into more complex scales. But yeah, don't simply memorize where to put your fingers, learn WHY you put your fingers where you do.

Good luck.
