Watch the The Half-whole Scale online guitar lesson by Jeff Beasley from Shred Ahead Blues Rock

The half-whole scale is named appropriately in that it progresses half-step, whole-step, half-step, whole-step, etc. It's also known as the octatonic scale in that it has eight tones per octave. The scale has a very dissonant or unstable quality catching the listener off guard and of course requiring resolution to stability.
