    When I saw the video I had the same impression as you. I read your comment and I agreed, but in Hey Joe (hendrix), he plays Em, the base notes of the chords make an Em, but when he plays E, he plays it major.

    You are playing a 5-4-1 progression in E major yet you are playing an E "minor" scale? This is more suitable for the blue scale or an E "major" pentatonic (C minor pentatonic). Other pentatonic scales that will work for this particular chord progression are F# minor and G# minor. The E minor pentatonic scale will work "better" over a 5-4-1 progression in the key of G major. Try playing D-C-G using your same rhythm and then playing your E minor pentatonic … It should sound "more" correct.
