Hey Daman, after our chat I went away and listened hard.. this is what I came up with:

(All chords with a small 'm' I mean to be minor chords.. any chords written as just C, G, F, etc are automatically major in tonality.)

I've written the appropriate scales after each progression as well

0:00
Cm, G#, A# x 4
G#, A#, Eb x 1
G#, A# back to the start of progression - C minor scale is used over this.

0:56
Am, F, Cadd9 - A minor scale
G#, Fm, Cm, - C minor scale

1:13
G#(G#add9), Fm, Gm - C minor Pentatonic

1:19
G#, G - Cminor / C minor Pentatonic

1:29
Cm, G#, A#, Eb, F, Gm, Am, G# - C minor Pentatonic

1:40
Same as above except F at the end, not G#. C minor Pentatonic until 1:51 where he plays a lick in C major scale to resolve into next chord progression

1:53
C, F, C, A#, F, C - Cmajor scale ( C mixolydian would also work, especially over the F..C mixo is the same as F major scale)

2:06
Back to beginning chord progression - same scale applies

2:48
Same as 0:56 - 1:29

3:21
Am, A#, A, A#, C, F, G, Am, A#, A, A#, F, G - Piano solo (I think the chords are correct, might have messed up)

3:58
C, F, G, Am, A#, Am, A#, F, G - C major scale, turning mainly to Am Pentatonic from the first G chord onwards. Am and Cmajor share the same notes, so the C major scale or Am scale both work.. but he uses pentatonic patterns a lot.

When he gets to the A# section, here's what happens:

4:08 A# Lydian 4:10 Am scale 4:12 A# Lydian 4:14 C major scale (or F Lydian, G mixolydian - same thing)

4:17
G#, A#, F, G, G#, A#, Cm, Eb, F, F (lower version) I've no idea what he's playing here, sorry ! However, he is probably playing notes that relate directly over the chords, so if the chord is minor, it's probably a minor arpeggio of that chord, major arpeggio of a major chord etc..

it's a lot of info to take in but I hope it helps ! smile.gif
