This issue demonstrates the three notes per string (3nps) A natural minor scale box shapes.

The AGEDC octaves sequence is shown for A natural in the diagram that follows:-

AGEDC octaves A natural

GuitarPro6 A natural octaves

The diagram that follows shows all of the A natural minor scale notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's

fretboard in both the Guitar Pro and AGEDC octaves styles:-

GuitarPro6 A natural minor scale

AGEDC octaves A natural minor scale notes

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales/arpeggios as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the A natural minor scale are detailed below in the AGEDC octaves manner:-

The table and tabbed panel below details all seven box shapes for the 3nps A natural minor scale in the
AGEDC octaves style.
