Hi, so I have decided to learn all the blues scale movable shapes, but I cant seem to find any tab of a extended e minor blues scale, where the scale is played for example from the bottom of the neck to much higher notes, I know where all the notes are because I can see them here http://www.coniferguitar.com/Blues_scales_for_guitar/Em_sixnote_blues_scale/Em_sixnote_blues_scale.html ---but I dont know which notes to select to make the best sounding scale, I wanted to learn an extended Em blues scale could anyone tab me one or instruct me the best way how to do it? Thanks!

I assume you mean a 3-notes-per-string scale? Pentatonic scales don't really lend themselves to that sort of playing, unless you like stretching! You could try this though, its an E blues scale, and starts on note D:

E: 10-12-15
A: 12-13-14
D: 12-14-17
G: 14-15-16
B: 15-17-20
E: 17-18-19

I guess you are looking for something like this:

e|--------------------------------------10-12-
B|---------------------------8-10-11-12-------
G|-----------------------7-9------------------
D|---------------5-7-8-9----------------------
A|-----------5-7------------------------------
E|-0-3-5-6-7----------------------------------


You could figure out your own shape though. This is just what I find easy to play (because all the jumps are only 1 or 2 fret jumps). When coming up with your shape, just make sure it contains all the notes of the scale. You want it to be easy to play.

Here's a few options. Red circle is the root (E here). See bottom of each image for colour coding of intervals.
