im really impressed by this guitar cover.

is this guy playing arpeggios? if yes then which ones? or is he soloing in the key of the song? or are they notes other than in the key which he figured out?

He's just playing the melody with a few minor emebellishments, at least until the end.

I've got no interest in digging through this song and figuring out which notes are diatonic and which aren't. He's using a lot of chord tones because the chord tones are usually strongly related to the melody.

Start by playing simple melodies, figure them out by ear. Take stuff you know by heart: nursery rhymes, christmas carols, movies themes. Simple stuff. If that's hard, practice with the functional ear trainer (free download from miles.be). Gradually work up to more complicated stuff.

Worrying about what key and what accidentals he's using before being able to play the melody is a waste of time.
