Theorywise im playing in a Em dorian mode (E, F#, G, A, B, C#, D) and here im using scale snippets from the F# minor pentatonic scale (the first part) and the Bminor pentatonic scale (the second part)
The Em dorian mode is starting on the 2nd step of the D Major scale, and that scale contains
3 major chords/scales

D Major (Ionian mode or 1st step/mode)
G Major (Lydian mode or 4th step/mode)
A Dominant Major ( Mixolydian mode or 5th step/mode)

and 3 minor chords/scales
E minor (Dorian mode or 2nd step/mode)
F# minor  (Phrygian mode or 3rd step/mode)
B minor  (Dorian mode or 2nd step/mode)

I often just use the pentatonic versions of the above scales
and in this case i use the F#m and Bm penatonic scale
( I of course also use the Em pentatonic scale but not in this example)

Im playing a 1964 Fender Jazbass through a Boss JS-10 into a Zoom Q3 HD recorder
