Whole Tone Scale Guitar Lick #1

This week we are going to look at some guitar licks using the whole tone scale in the key of A. The whole tone scale is simply a scale where every  successive interval is a whole tone apart. On a guitar that means on a string a distance of two frets apart. Looking at the fretboard you will see in the key of A the B and G strings use all the even numbered frets and the E and D strings the Odd #. This can lead to some interesting patterns.
