I know that

e---------9-12-9-------
B-----11----------11---
G-12-----------------12
D------------------------
A------------------------
E------------------------

= Diminished

So what is this?

e-------8-12-8--------
B----9-----------9------
G-9----------------9----
D------------------------
A------------------------
E------------------------

(diminished but with every interval a 5th apart instead of 4th)

I've been hearing it a lot in technical bands. Something tells me its augmented...

It could be anything - what key is the backing in?

The notes there are E, G# and C, that's it. They could belong to any number of scales.

I would say those specific licks are arpegiations(sp?) not necessarily scales.

Yes, the tonality would be that of an augmented C triad or an E6 without the fifth (I lean more towards Caug); TS, is that what you're looking for?

Using the first note of the arpeggio as the root, you correctly say the first is diminished, because the intervals from the root are b3, b5 and bb7.

SO, using this method, the second arpeggio has the intervals major 3 and major 6.
you could say the major 6 was a bb7, but with a major 3rd i think that may be unlikely.

did you tab it out correctly?
