Satriani - Up in The Sky


I've been learning this song for a few days and I want to improvise over the melody, but I don't know what key it is in. Also, what scales can be used?

Re: Satriani - Up in The Sky

The melody or the solo section?

The melody is basically E minor pentatonic, although the chorus changes keys... I'm thinking Bm, but I'd want to grab aguitar to be sure. 99% sure it's Bm, though.

The solo section, I think, goes up chromatically, I'm pretty sure it's G#-A-A#-B, before resolving on an E, I think, but I have only the vaguest recollection of how that solo goes. I won't have net access over the weekend, but if I remember to check I'll pull out the transcription book for the album and confirm this.

Actually, scratch that, you've got a tab- the verse is an E minor pentatonic scale and the chorus is all B minor chord tones, right? And does the solo move through a series of scales that corresponds to (presumably minor) variations of G# through B?
