Perhaps you've already discovered this, but we have the 2nd Part of our FFcP lessons in the Mandolin Cafe Lessons section. If you've unraveled to logic of this approach to attacking scales, you may already be comfortable in the lower frets with these exercises. If you've gone the next step, you've moved them up the fingerboard, but how about combining them into multiple octave drills?
We've done this in an exercise called "Moving on Up," and it does just that, gives you several opportunities for transition between areas of the fingerboard. The key here is not just mastering them in the different positions, but being able to move smoothly, shifting seamlessly.
