im trying to figure out what scale marty using but i do not recognize the notes. He says its in the key of E and i know its not the E natural minor or the E harmonic minor. I do hear a little resemblance of the pentatonic at the end. But to be honest i have no idea what the man is doing.

Anyone help me with this? I want to know because i like the sound of that it feels very exotic and not normal like Harmonic minor or minor or major its different sounding.

He's using notes from A harmonic minor, but also just using patterns that aren't really in any scale, I didn't really like it so don't want to spend more time listening to what's going on. He did say loosely in E though, meaning accidentals.

it sounds like he starts with an E double harmonic scale, but then it devolves into a mess of different passing tones and chromatic runs.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

to be honest i think hes using a pattern of his own then he slides into an E Arabic or double harmonic minor. Possibly??

So i was right? And something that marty does muscially i so his other videos and he uses notes outside of the scale that sound not to rough and he also does end on tonics which gives it it a cool sound.

EDIT: so again i have no idea what to make of this again it looks like a B arabic scale but i have no clue what hes doing in this video
