usually minor and harmonic minor

once it gets to that part in the song ill let you know about the sweep

edit: it was kinda hard to tell since it was just a quick little sweep, but try stuff like this




e---------13-17-13
B-----15-------------15
G-14--------------------14


e-------15-18
B----17--------17
G-18-------------18




the first is a minor arp and the other is a diminished

also bands like that do a lot of diminished arpeggios like this



e
B
G--------------9-12
D-------8-11
A-7-10
E




edit: to acousticpunk: i think the diminished scale is just WHWHWHWHWHWHWHWHWHetc. but i dont know how you would write it like the others you have

There are two diminished scales: The H-W scale and the W-H scale.

The H-W is often referred to the Dominant Diminished scale because it has a 3 and b7.

H-W: 1, b2, b3, 3, #4, 5, 6, b7
used over dominant chords (functioning V) and preferably dom13b9

W-H: 1, 2, b3, 4, b5, b6, bb7, 7
used over diminished 7th chords


They both have 8 notes which makes them "octatonic (eight tone)" scales instead of "diatonic (seven tone)"
