RE: Never knew the exact name for those chords

The chord progression in the solo sections in the Grateful Dead's song Eyes of The World includes an Emaj7. Definitely lends a different color to the song vs. the typical major chord or flat 7th chord found in most rock songs.

For soloing on ABB tunes like Melissa, Blue Sky, Ramblin Man, etc. the pentatonic major is definitely the way to go. Just throw in a lick that includes the major 4th every now & again and you can say you're using the "hexatoinc" major scale. :-)
