Hi everyone, I'm starting to improvise.
I really like how this guy plays. What scale does he use? It is simple but very jazzy.
best regards

I mean, there's a lot more going on than just scales here. But the first scale he utilises is a bebop major scale (which is a Ionian Major Scale with an added #5) and he also uses some b9 and #9 variations on dominant chords.

Scales are fine, but realistically there's more to it. He does a great job of outlining the chord changes. Look into that, way more useful for this kind of improvising.
