Watch the Lick Vocabulary 30 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

As we move up the board, the next stop is 4th/5th position, as illustrated here. I especially like this position as it affords many opportunities for a variety of great licks that fall on the lower strings. When I shift focus to the higher strings, however, some equally interesting phrasing possibilities pop up, so work hard to absorb these examples and then develop some of your own.
