Hey does anybody know what scale the guitarist from "Guess Who" is using when he does that solo type riff during "American Woman"?

It sounds like it would be cool to mess around with. any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

At 1:05 he is using E Mixolydian. The higher notes that ring out are 1 and 3 of the scale one octave higher.

I don't do tab but try this....G-string 9-11/13 B-string 9-10/12
High E-string 12 G-string 9-11/13
High E-string 16 B-string 12-14/15

This symbol / means to slide from one fret to another. Ex. 10/12 means to slide from the 10th fret the the 12th fret but only pick once. I hope this helps.
