Stevie Ray Vaughan uses the blues scales a lot but he also adds some notes to given him that "texas" sound. Try learning his songs and trying to fit some of his licks into the blues scale. Next, see what notes he uses outside of the scale that given him that sound.

Download The Sky is Cryin or Cold Shot in the tabs section and work through those while listening to the songs.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. He really does have a disinct sound, but it is so awesome!

He only really adds a couple of notes, just have a look at some tabs to figure out which ones. He also does quite alot of ghost notes, sliding from a wrong note into a right one.

If you want to get near the sound of his soloing, you'll have to get some serious muting skills. He does alot of rakes on dead notes into his solo's, which takes some getting used to doing.

He also does a lot of chordal solos. He plays chords and manipulates the chord to give it a distinct sound. Or at least that's what I've noticed.

Awww, if I could quote that and still have my gear I totally would.

Anyway, I think a lot of what he does is the passing tones of chords. Very confusing, and hard for me to explain. He is pretty much using the blues scale though, with the occasional major 3rd, major 7th, or flatted(ummm or natural I forget) 9th.

Just play around on the blues scale, with lots of hammer-ons, and bends.

Basically he, like many other blues players, knows how to traverse between the major pentatonic and the blues scale.

Most blues is played with dominant 7th chords, meaning there is a dissonance between the 3rd and the 7th, so you can essentially throw everything over it.

Pretty much improvise out of pentatonic blues w/ like 13's, a huge pick, and a picking hand made of lead.

Stevie used to create amazing dynamics by hitting notes either hard or softly.

He also used strings rakes, palm mutes, the blues scale, prebends.

He used to slide down/up from a note totally out of the scale to spice it up a bit.

He also had an amazing vibrato
