In the video below we look at the whole tone scale, the fingering and the augmented triads contained within the whole tone scale and its only transposition.

The Whole tone scale is made up of whole steps. Because of this it only has 1 transposition. In this case you could only take the scale up a semi tone because if it goes up one more semitone then you would be back to where you started.
