Ok to you guys this is a n00b question, how do you extend a scale to all positions? For example the a minor in 5th position how do you extend it to the others?

not too sure i get ur question, but i think i know waht you mean.

if u want to say play the a minor scale elsewhere, the easiest thing to do would be to switch toa different key and play the corresponding minor scale (ie b minor, u could play the scale 2 frets up).

unless u mean in the same key, just different places, you can just play different modes of the same scale.
here's one of my favourite resources for all htings scales.

I think you mean keeping a scale in the same key and using the different positions of that scale together yeah?

the different positions fit together one after another (in my mind I imagine it like a jigsaw puzzle) and then 12 frets up it loops back around...like this

highest fret numbers in 1st position = lowest fret numbers in 2nd position
highest fret numbers in 2nd position = lowest fret numbers in 3rd position
highest fret numbers in 3rd position = lowest fret numbers in 4th position
highest fret numbers in 4th position = lowest fret numbers in 5th position
and then
highest fret numbers in 5th position = lowest fret numbers in 1st position
(I forget how many positions...idiot)

not sure of a simpler way to explain
