Lydian Guitar Lick

A little lydian lick for today. Couldn't quite dial in a tone I liked but I hope the video gives you some idea for the guitar part. This is based on the E Lydian Scale which has the same notes as the B Major scale ( of you can think of it as an E Major scale with a sharp 4th). E, F#, G#, A#,B,C#,D#,E

To my ears the lydian scale has a mellow almost spacey feel. Its a favorite choice of Steve Vai's too.
