I am trying to pull of this 26-2 on guitar any idea which scale is the guy with the hat using at about minute 1:59?



Thanks a lot.

  • It’s not one scale. It’s modal improvisation, which is sort of like using a different scale for each chord and changing scales very quickly. Aug 25 '18 at 7:35
  • He's simply playing the changes and following the chords of the song. As a new chord arrives, he's switching which scale he's using to match that chord. Its really helpful to look at a lead sheet while listening to the recording: thejazzlab.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/26-2.jpg The song (and the licks being improvised) sound different and unique because it's built from Coltrane changes
