The diminished pattern is repeated one fret down on the sixth repeat.
It continues chromatically down in this way until the highest note
reaches 13th fret, high E string.  This tope note then spells out
these frets really quickly:-

14,13,14,13,14,15,16,17,18.

One thing... this is the end solo of the 'Taurus Bulba' section at the end of 'Fire Garden Suite'. Not 'Bangkok'. Otherwise, very good.
