Drews phrasing better be immaculate
I'll ruin the surprise for you - it isn't.
Fire - Eh, I've been playing since I was 15, and got pretty serious within maybe two or three years. At 33, it's sort of ingrained. I'm still not nearly as good at improvising as I'd want to be, and one thing I've been working on in particular is sort of "loosening up" my paying to play much longer, flowing, fast runs across the entire fretboard. There's a few position changes that feel very natural to me, but a whole bunch that don't, so I'm trying to fix that. But I have a pretty good idea where I am, usually, even if my fingers can't pull something off.
If it helps, I tend to look at scales not as positions, but linked three note per string patterns. If you look at my playing, you'll see me doing a LOT with 6 note groupings, three notes per string on adjacent strings. Once you start to "see" how those fit within the scale patterns you already know, and more importantly how they connect to each other (so that you can do a position shift elsewhere and know which pattern you're in, or jump up a string and know how it connects to the 6-note block above it, where the top three notes of the prior are now the next three of the subsequent), you quickly become pretty position agnostic.
