Watch the Move Licks Around the Neck online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Lick Logic
Motif based ideas can be moved to other locations on the fretboard to achieve different musical results. I often do this with a particular melodic shape that I particularly like in a scale pattern, and then look for the same shape within the same key in another scale pattern. The shape is exactly the same but the resulting notes at the new location afford me totally different notes, which can sound amazing.
We'll be working within the key of D Major - again, keeping the ideas simple but melodic. The phrasing of each of these lines will make all the difference...keep in mind the study on shifting the same phrase across the beats of a measure; we can do that with this concept, too.
