When I was a much, much younger person ... I learned the E pentatonic scale in first position on my acoustic guitar. My friend Chris and I were jammin' one day, and I went crazy and grabbed a note up high on the neck; position 7 or 9 ... and it was in tune... WOW! I was then able to figure out the Pentatonic scale in that higher position, and then the other positions in between. I was a rock star. I could play the in tune patterns all the way up and down the neck.
So, from this, my suggestion is to take a melody or phrase you know well in position 1, and play it in position 5 or position 10.
You too , can be a rock star.
