neil has a very unimitatable style. it is very eclectic and spastic, but beautiful.
one thing he does i he tunes to D modal (double dropped D) which is:
DADGBD
also, he relies heavily on his bigsby vibrato unit for lots of tremolo effects. his guitar, old black, is an old goldtop les paul with p 90s that has been painted black and has an extremely microphonic pickup from a firebird. he also uses a fender deuxe amp cranked to the max.

for scales and such, i would stick to the E minor pentatonic and improvise.
