Call me stupid on this but I was wondering, could you play the 5th position lower on the neck, behind the 1st position? If I was playing in A minor, the root note is on the low E string, 5th fret. If I moved down, could I play the 5th position between the 1-4th frets?

If I understand you correctly, you wouldn't be playing Am anymore.
What?! There's a clean channel on my amp?!

A minor pentatonic has the following notes: A, C, D, E, G.

There are 5 box shapes to play the A minor pentatonic across the neck, the 1st box which ofcourse starts on the A (5th fret of the low E string).

Therefore, you could play the A minor box shape starting on G (5th position) starting on the 3rd fret (the same shape you would play on the 15th fret since these are just octaves).

You could also play the open E shape which would be the 4th position box shape.

I think that is what you were asking?

Yes, I was referring mainly to the 5th position starting on the G note (3rd fret, E string). Thanks guys!
