during the jam, it's pretty much using E mixolydian, which is a major scale with a flattened 7th, so over 2 octaves it would look like this:

e|---------------------------8-9-11-
B|--------------------8-9-11--------
G|-----------6-7-9-11---------------
D|-----6-7-9------------------------
A|-7-9------------------------------
E|----------------------------------




the song is in A major.

thank you very much, but what chords do they use in the jam?, just E7 and D?
