So I'm teaching my nephew to play guitar. He's 20 now, and getting quite good. We've been learning some solos together, and now we're getting into the "what" and "why" of the solos....which was all fine and good when it was the Jims, Gilmour, etc. But now, we're learning some other stuff.
I was flattered as hell when he asked me about one of my solos from my old band. So I showed him the notes- there's a weird part where I play some riffs that I copped from some tab somewhere that are slightly dissonant. I basically sat down and structured the solo to try and sound like Larry Carlton from "Kid Charlemagne". The result was a hack job (to my ears now) but it ended up being kinda cool. So my nephew asked me what mode it was, and I'm at a loss, as I don't know the names...honestly I dont even know notes on the fretboard besides the cowboy chords.
So, I'd like to be able to tell him at least that much, and maybe somebody here could point me in the direction of a modes learning tool (read: YouTube vid)

TLDR I believe the key is in E but I don't know modes.

Solo starts around 2:15 the weird part I made up starts around 2:30. You'll be able to tell. ;)

I hear all blues/pentatonic framework but you hang a little on some dissonant microtones through your bends.
