I was asked the most complex "question" I've ever received recently. Basically, this person wanted to know how to use 3 note per string octave licks, how to go from one scale shape to the next, how each shape relates to one another, can you go from Major to minor to harmonic minor to melodic minor, and how.
Woah! That's a lot of stuff. I did my best to answer everything as quickly and precise as possible in this video, which does happen to be a bit lengthy:
The following links are good resources for several 3 note per string scale shapes:
