What Scales does Marty Friedman typically use?



He uses alot of different scales. Keep in mind your not going to sound like him just by learning those scales. If thats your goal, you're better off asking about a particular solo of his, and then learning that solo.
shred is gaudy music

Here's some various ones he uses in specific solos.

Foreclosure of a dream: Switches between blues and mixolydian
Hangar 18: Natural minor, phyrgian dominant
Tornado of Souls: Blues and harmonic minor

These two are misleading/wrong.

"Hangar 18" has two distinct sections. In the first half of the song, the solos are largely based on the natural minor scale and some chromaticism (due to the chromatic lick behind it). The Eastern section almost certainly uses Phrygian Dominant, but likely uses various other scales as well to achieve such a foreign sound. He also uses odd phrasing to create the unusual sound.

"Tornado of Souls" is not a blues-based solo, and it uses only little harmonic minor. The rhythm behind the solo is (implied to be) Bm G E F# A. The primary scale is B natural minor, which is played over Bm, G, and A. Over E, he uses a lot of B Dorian licks. Over F#, he uses a combination of natural and harmonic minor.
