What are some scales that are common and would be useful for solos Alternative rock (preferably 90's alternative) and Psychedelic music?
Pentatonic. Then add loads of acid, weed and effects pedals.
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

“A man who mistakes secrets for knowledge is like a man who, seeking light, hugs a candle so closely that he smothers it and burns his hand.”

You can also use an eastern scale which is 0-1-4-5-7-8-11-12, adds a bit of flavour.
