Synyster Gates: "Ear all the time because that's how all that..."

Synyster Gates was interviewed by Ultimate Guitar, here's an excerpt:

Are you running scales and things you know when developing solos or are you working by ear? 
Ear all the time because that's how all that sh-t was invented. That came from somebody's ears - "Oh, that sounds good to me." Having said that when you know a scale and have a broad understanding of those kinds of things, it's very easy to facilitate. You don't wonder so much, which seems like it can be a bad thing but it takes practice to not stay compliant to what you know and let it facilitate rather than hinder you.
