Whole Tone Scale Guitar Lick #6

A nice feature of the whole tone  scale across the guitar fretboard is that it can yield a lot of symmetrical patterns. For example in today's guitar lick we use a pattern on the B and G strings. Because of the whole tone interval we can move this pattern up and down the B and G strings and play it on every even numbered fret and remain within the A whole tone scale. In this example I play the main lick and them move it up 2 frets then back to the main position and then up four frets.
