In this bar the guitarists plays E.
And the synth plays these notes over it:
E||-------------------------------------------
B||-----------------12-------15---------------
G||--------14----14----13-14----14-13-14-13---
D||--12-14----14----------------------------14
A||-------------------------------------------
E||-------------------------------------------



Through all-guitar-chords.com I acknowledged that over E these are the
Recommend scales:

Major scale
Lydian scale
Pentatonic major scale

But what scale is this that the synth plays? I'm really a theory noob.

My second question is that the guitarist then switches to F#m and then to D but the synth plays the same pattern??

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

looks like that's the major scale with a chromatic passing tone on the g string. i'm a theory noob too, but the rest looks like the standard major scale

I remember this one time - Jesus played Eruption on a lute with strings made from the hair of 23 virgins.

It was pretty hardcore.

Looks like A major to me.

Umm, that's not really a question, it's a statement. But I'll answer the question you meant to ask. The keyboard player can still play those notes because the chords are also in A major, so all the notes 'work' together.

How did you guys derive from the few info I gave that the key is A major? It has 3 sharps indeed but I didn't tell

The key with three sharps is A major. The order of sharps goes F C G D A E B. Notice that the D in the tab is not sharped, so it cannot be any key 'after' A.
