Relative minor question

I've recently started working on the 14 pos in G major. I know that the relative minor of G maj is E min. Would I playing the Emin scale if I started at the 6th tone (E as my root instead of G) of the Gmaj scale and played the next 7 tones? Am I on track or am I way off base?

You're right on the money, but getting ahead of yourself. I do the same thing, and it's very easy to get off track.

When I'm working on my theory right now it's better for me to stick exclusively on the major scale and worry about the rest later.

Just figured as long as I'm there might as well kill two birds with one stone.

stick an Eminor backing on and play a g major get that minor sound, then try g major over a Aminor backing and get a dorian sound. its all relative to the chords being played but you are on the right track.

So if i were to move the 1st position of Gmaj 2 frets up the neck I would be playing A maj? If this is so then I could move that 1st position anywhere on the neck and be playing the equivalent scale? And if this is true I would only need to learn 14 positions and be able to play in any scale?

Yes, that's absolutely right!

That's the simplicity of the guitar. All patterns are repeatable and moving them on the board simply changes the key.

You mean play in any key. but yes if you have learnt the caged system, you will see that the root notes never change you just move the scales around them.

The goal is to know the neck well enough to be able to play in any key from a single location.
Download the Circle of 5ths/12 pos system and taht has it all there.

I think I had a moment of discovery this morning. If I use Pos 1, the 6th tone will be on the d string. So in my mind if I'm playing position 1 i can always figure out my relative minor by my index finger on the d string and then my relative major would be the low e string where my middle finger is. Hopefully the gurus here can confirm or correct me if I'm wrong.
