It's a 4/4 rhythm that goes something like this:
E maj - 1st 4 beats
E maj, Cadd2/E, and Dsus2-sus4

The Dsus4 is hammered on from the Dsus2
The Cadd2/E is barred on the third fret. It's just my lazy version of a C major.

I was improvising over it, and it has a kind of E Mixolydian mode to it, but when I went online to look up the corresponding chords, there's no C major. This kinda threw me off.

Is it still E Mixolydian even if I play a C major chord?

Its not what you play that counts. Its how much noise you can make with it!

E major with borrowed chords from the parallel minor key
I - bVI - bVII

A mode is not a key, by the way

Read any of the 525,600 threads on modes

Yeah, Emajor. You could do something cool though, and solo over it in phrygian or phrygian dominant. That's what I do on a jazz tune w/same progression.

As said above, it's E major. Accidentals can be employed to the scale over the Dsus2 to share the same notes as the E mixolydian scale.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

E Major

VI and VII borrowed from minor.

use E Major over the E Major chord, and E natural minor over the C & D chords.
shred is gaudy music

E Minor Pentatonic or Natural Minor Scale over the whole thing even though it starts with an E major chord.

I - VIb - VII - I in E Minor

E - Cadd2/E - Dsus4 - E (Picardy Third)

Including a b7 over the E chord will sound good too.

Yeah... me likes that too

Might as well enjoy that you have already used the borrowed G natural and use a #9... make that E major a Hendrix chord
