Just minor [and major] scales.
Maybe the blues scale too.

I'm no expert but that's really it

he doesn't use the minor pentonic or minor blues scale at all i think here.
I'm not sure if it's the major pentatonic that he uses here though....
does anyone know ?

Why not play along with him?
Improvise in scales and see what fits.

Looks like the G minor pentatonic or G blues.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Alright.

He uses these notes when he solos,
G 1
A 2
Bb b3
B 3
C 4
D 5
E 6
F b7


I'm clueless as to which scale this is ?

Im pretty certain thats G mixolydian. The minor third (Bb) isn't a part of the scale, but most blues players will throw in the minor third when playing in a major key.

ah right, didn't think about that.

I guess I'm going to learn the mixolydian scale then.


Thanks guys

its your standard g minor bluesy stuff. he's probobly playing some improvised chromatics here and there which might be what is throwing you off. playing by ear is better than playing by scales.

hardly any chromatic stuff in there.
Not minor either, it's major all the way.
Sorry to say it, but you tell me to play by ear while you didn't even hear if it's major or minor...

Thats like a Mixolydian scale, but with a blue note from the Major blues scale. Some people call that the "Major blues mode".
