if for example im practicing a penta minor. and im using the locrian shape(the next shape after root)
how do you finger it? do you keep the position and use second and 4 finger combo a lot or do you constantly move you hand position?

I wouldn't call Locrian the next shape after, but rather the last shape before. Especially if you're going to use the name "locrian" for its position, as it is the seventh mode.

As for positioning, why would you need to move your hand for any of the notes in a pentatonic minor?

Could you explain a bit better what exactly is the issue?

I got your point. In the pentatonic case you can use any finger that feels the most comfortable. I personaly use all 4 fingers but people usually use only 3 as the pentatonic shapes are all good for that especially if you're bending too much.

Sorry I just understood as well, as Emir started to explain. Basically what you want to know is what fingering to use right?
If that is the case, any fingering is possible really, whatever is most comfortable for you. 2nd and 4th finger is usual fingering, and using those fingers will help you to give them more strength since they are the weakest usually. So, it may be wise to push on doing with them for a while although it may seem a bit acquard. I will pay out.

Some people solo using only 3 fingers for example!
Take Guthrie Govan or Greg Howe. They do amazing stretches with index middle and ring fingers. It depends what you want to practice. I like to use all 4 fingers regardless of the scale or position.
