    Pfft! I've heard some of your stuff! You're much better than you're letting on!

    The thing is constantly finding something new to play over this chord progression. It's in G. You can do G major, G minor, E minor, pentatonics of the same, Dorian, Mixolydian (same as E minor, actually). You can go through all of that in about 30 seconds. NOW what?

    I just looked up a G major backing track at 200 bpm and tried playing along. Apparently my manual dexterity is more of a problem than I remembered.

    However, I do think I've figured out one of the first runs he did that I thought sounded "exotic" was Phrygian (B).

    I found that backing track, if anybody's interested.

    Hmm, now I'm thinking I meant E Aeolian is E minor. D is Mixolydian.

    However, yes, you can play G Dorian over this when going to the fourth chord! I'll do it without apology!
