Los Lobos - Dream in Blue- Mode?

I'm trying to to learn modes and where and when to apply them.

If anyone out there is familiar with Los Lobos - "Dream in Blue" I could use a little help trying to analyze the modes they use in that song.

1)The bulk of the verse and chorus seems to be in E major (ionian), EAD progression??

2)Then there's a break which seem to be be over an E7 , there's only a droning guitar part but I'm guessing that if you wanted to embellish this you'd play an E Blues scale or Minor pentatonic???

3)Now comes a very cool little kick that I'm in love with but can't figure out how they derive it. I could really use help with this one. It seems to be over an A7 chord but I can't find a scale (mode) that seems to apply to the notes being played. ????????

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
