scales used

 This is the scale that Jerry uses throughout this song, although certain notes maybe sharped or flatted at some points.  The solos that Jerry plays in this song are truly amazing and take some dexterity and time to master.  So, I suggest just learning this scale proficiently first, before tackling the solo's of  'Lady with a Fan'.  Plus, once you've got the scale down you can better understand the structure of Jerry's solo's and the notes played.
