A question about scales and solos!

Which scales are key to create these kinds of solos and which scales are being used in the solos in the songs?

From 4:18 and on.

You should really watch the whole video because it`s so damn awesome. You can`t spell aWESsome without Wes .
The solo and stuff is at 2:25 and on.
5:15 and on is truly awesome, at least for my ears..

He expected it to be some magical collection of notes that would make his solos all sound awesome!

Learning a new scale is so much easier than actually learning how to use the scales you already know.

We're cunts aren't we, TS? Absolute cunts.

The solution to your problem is one of two things:

1) Learn more scales
2) Give up music

Harmonic phyrgian diminished 4 b7, Is that B phrygian dominant 4th interval and the second Pentatonic Minor? I suck at notes and shit.

If you heard the first solo, I asked which scales are usually used when doing those kinds of solos.
I hope you understand because sometimes is express myself poorly heheh..

Dude, you don`t need to be so harsh. I just want to learn something new.
Why do I ask? Because I want to learn some new scales.

Did I ask something wrong or what?

Sorry, that first part was just a joke.

The scale that is usually used in solos like that is, lo and behold, the minor scale. The keyword is tonality, stay away from modes if you had anything like that in mind, because that is heresy and quite frankly useless if you don't even know basic music theory. Learn the diatonic scales in different keys and positions all over the fretboard and you should start to get the hang of it.

In the first link, transcribe the bass guitar.

THEN, work out the chords.

I'll start by giving you the key: E Minor, thus the scale will be E Minor.

The second link is in C♯ Minor. So use that scale.

Buy this and study.

Or get a teacher... a GOOD one.

TRANSCRIBE. It takes some work, and time. Like, years.
