I got some blues backing tracks right some in G, A, E, and i think i am good at improvising blues in these positions using minor pentatonics.

I just get stuck in the same box positions, and im struggling to get out of it.

Can anyone help, any other scales in these keys ?

Learn the extensions of the scale, so you can play all over the board, it helps you make new licks, and sound better in general.

Look for the "Steal this Video" on the blues scale and soloing, I found that to be very helpful.

Yup, learn the scale all over the fretboard...like this. You aren't "joining scales", you're just playing the same scale in different places.

Try not to see it as box positions though, learn to keep track of the notes you're playing and actively look all over the fretboard for different places to play them...that'll keep you moving around.

Remember to "understand" it too - spot the repeated notes and see why the pattern changes...notes on different strings, that kind of thing. It'll sink in a lot easier that way.
