Hey guys i just wanna ask you about analysing this song
((((((((marco sfogli - still hurts))))))))
in the intro first "lick" i couldn't identify the scale ( E-F#-G-G#-A-A#-B )
How the scale changes & what the name of it

That looks very chromatic.

The song is in the key of F# minor.

Also, I don't hear those notes anywhere in the intro. When the guitar comes in for the first time (at around 0:13), it plays an ascending E major pentatonic run starting from B.


e|------------------------------
B|----------------------9-12-10-
G|-----------------9-11---------
D|------------9-11--------------
A|-----7-9-11-------------------
E|-7-9--------------------------

There's only ever one scale in a song bar modulations, but chromatics happen in music from most genres and eras.
Glad to cross paths with you on this adventure called life

lots of flirting with the other key without confirming. JUST LIKE THEIR LOVE IN THE MOVIE OH DAMN.

Oh Yes u r right

But it looks like the tab is wrong (y)

Yeah, don't trust tabs 100%. Many of them are incorrect (especially the ones posted by random people, but even "official" tabs can be pretty inaccurate). Listen to the song. Does what the tab says sound right?

Videos are good for getting an idea of how something is played. But always use your ears. If you can't figure out how something goes just by listening to it, you can always slow it down.
