Hello everybody.

So I have been trying to do more with my solos except just staying in a box like scales. So I been reading about finding the notes in a certain scale. So after finding all the notes in the scale, I could use these notes all over the fretboard to solo anywhere? And if so, how would I go mapping out every note on the fret board? Also isn't it true that WHWWHWW is minor and WWHWWHH is natural minor?

And now that I'm trying to figure out what notes work in specific scales and the details of that, what else would work for helping my soloing, which might include helping play anywhere on the neck rather than staying in a box?
