ANyone know if he uses any specific scales or modes or just how he plays. Hes always all over the place.
Lately I've been trying to learn Wharf Rat and Tennessee Jed but I cant figure out what to do.

Besides Waldo's solid advice, pick up Phil's book "Searching for the Sound." Early on he give his account of how he approached the bass guitar.

Here is a hint - think of the root as a starting point not a destination.
