Well, I think "Sunshine" fits into the E Pentatonic Blues scale/pattern, which you can look up on this site in the Scales section. I don't think it belongs to any major scale really, because of the Bb (the 6th note of the E string). It's just a chromatic note thrown in for more variety.

Check out the blue's scale? I think it will answer your questions. Isn't it a minor pentatonic with a sharp 3rd. often it's bent up a whole step but can also just be added and played chromatically.
