Where are you?  Know where you are on the neck of the guitar. It sounds catchy, but it is practical.

 

Most guitarists learn scales with a root position on the fifth or sixth string, but all the scales can be played comfortably in various positions on the neck.  This video lesson, shows how to use the pentatonic blues scale in the 3rd and 4th inversions.

 

The root, 1st and 2nd inversion were shown in video lesson part 1 found here.

 

These two video lessons allows the guitarist to play this practical scale anywhere on the neck and learning this form in other keys puts the entire fingerboard at the guitarist’s disposal.
