Great tune to practice your Dickey hexatonic major licks to! Plus, one of the few rock tunes that includes a major 7th chord, a chord that's fun to play & adds a nice, sweet-sounding, color to the song...
Just a funny barred type, running up-&-down the fretboard. I experimented using it for War's "All Day Music." Not quite...
I think I play a major Blues pentatonic scales for the riffs.
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. :-)
