i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

(Assuming it starts on fret 13?? you're thingamajig is hard to read) looks like F Spanish Gypsy, where'd you learn it.

The scale itself is an E phrygian dominant scale. I think its one of the harmonic minor modes. Sounds pretty cool though if you do it right. Yngwie Malmsteen made that scale a household name.

farcry: i learned it by listening to a lot of Death, Chuck Schuldiner incorporated it in most of his solos, albeit in different keys, but i love playing it at the 12th fret.

just got done looking through my guitar grimore, it an E Phyrgian Major. I thought it was a variantion of the Phyrgian to begin with, or Hungarian Gypsy

It could be A Harmonic Minor, B Locrian 6, C Ionian #5, D Dordian #4, E Phrygian Major, or F Lydian #2.
