I play bass and i practice lots of scales but i want to extend them

can some one write up how to play say, A major starting 5th frett on E and ending on 14th frett of G including fingering.

or E minor pentatonic from open E to 21st frett on G.

uhh.. if you know what frets you are starting and finishing on, shouldnt you be able to fill in the blanks?

This is my personal favourite way to do it, and it's good if you can cover that reach.

One hand position to cover 5-7-9, one hand position to cover 7-9-11, and one mini hand position for the 13-14. Back down, you'll want one hand position for covering from 9 to 14 and then slightly shift it back to 7 for the 7-9-11 and once down again for he 5-7-9.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
