He used the same scales as everyone else I guess minor,blues and major,

lol I've never heard of this.

However, he did like to use patterns and transfer them over all the strings, like Dimebag sometimes did. I've never heard of one pattern called the EVH scale though... this is new.

I'm damn serious. It was in Guitar One a while ago. He uses that scale in "I'm the one"and "jump".

Yeah. I got that G1 as well. From a theoretical standpoint, it's not much of a scale. A really hard one to use as a scale, anyway, due to all the conflicting notes.

Yep. I read about that in Guitar One as well.

There are a few dissonant notes (if played together), so it seems hard to solo in.

EVH plays them fast enough to keep the dissonant notes notes short enough.

It's also a basis for another pattern, used by Dimebag:

----------------------------------------------11-12-15-
-------------------------------------11-12-15----------
----------------------------11-12-15-------------------
-------------------11-12-15----------------------------
----------11-12-15-------------------------------------
-11-12-15----------------------------------------------

This one's from the solo of Cowboys From Hell.

Another one of these patterns (no longer from Dimebag!) is the Dorian pattern with the root on the sixth string.

---------------------5-7-
-----------------5-7-----
-------------5-7---------
---------5-7-------------
-----5-7-----------------
-5-7---------------------

A Dorian. Combines pretty nifty with the Blues scale in the same position!

---------------------4-9-
-----------------4-9-----
-------------4-9---------
---------4-9-------------
-----4-9-----------------
-4-9---------------------

Stretchy in C#minor, sound a bit spacey.

I love how everyone is saying used. So now he's out of the public eye he's stopped playing.
