I'm usually not one for Rusty's playing, but this is a really cool concept: six note patterns, repeating twice, over three octaves. Basically, you leave out the seventh, get out of the box, and play diagonally across the fretboard. I've used this approach before in my solos, without every really thinking about what I was doing, but that was basically to just repeat a lick while climbing the fretboard. I've never thought of it as a way to just burn in key, although he presents it in a way that completely makes sense for that.
I've typically seen this done with harmonic minor, except that winds up having the seventh, and becoming a 3-note/4-note per string pattern, with an uncomfortable position shift in it. This seems far more useful.
That seems simple enough that even I could get it!
