C whole tone scale

The whole tone scale in other keys:

  notes on piano keyboard (one octave)
notes on piano keyboard -  c whole tone scale
c whole tone scale - staffs (notes) and guitar tab
* the figures below the score (sheet music) represent a tablature (shortly: tab) for guitar players.

An interesting thing about this scale is that it doesn't have a leading tone, it's absolutely symmetrical and "chopped" exactly, in a way that there's an interval of a whole tone between each note.
