Anyone know what kind of scales Skolnick uses to get his sound in solos like Souls of Black and the one at the beginning of The Ballad? I have been playing for around 3 years but never learned much theroy so if learning this will mean having to learn in the theroy area suggestions would be appreciated.

For the most part, minor scales
        ,
        |\
[U]        | |                     [/U]
[U]        |/     .-.              [/U]
[U]       /|_     `-’       |      [/U]
[U]      //| \      |       |      [/U]
[U]     | \|_ |     |     .-|      [/U]
      *-|-*    (_)     `-’
        |
        L.

No, Skolnick is a very modal player, he often leaves the minor or combines it with other scales, weaving in and out between them.
