Ok so I have been reading all the articles on UG about improvising solos and composing solos. Still I have yet to have my question answered. How in the hell do you connect the scales together to be able to ascend and descend the fretboard. For example, say Im composing a solo with a key of G in the Major scale. I know the basic pattern for the Major scale, but how do I connect that from fret 3 on the 6th string to the 12th string on the 3rd string? What am I missing here?
When you move up the neck, the only notes you are adding are the higher notes. The rest of the notes, with the exception of the G note on the low E string, are just repeating. The G note on the 5th fret of the D string is the same as the G note on the 10th fret of the A string, which is also the same as the G note on the 15th fret of the low E.

If you mean what I think you mean, yes.

Pentatonic Major in G = G A B D E

Then you repeat, but an octave higher.
