1. It's Rhoads.
2. Check out Harmonic Minor and start reading up on modes.

Natural Minor or Aeolian scale, Harmonic Minor (when used in certain ways, gives that "neoclassical" feel), and as H4T3BR33D3R says, modes are the way to go after that.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

Most musicians don't really use any radical scales to solo with. The only things you really need to know are the modes and the harmonic minor/phrygian dominant.

The major pentatonic doesn't make you sound Chinese all the time. In fact, it's good to know it for variation. There are many ways that one can go from Major Pentatonic to Minor Pentatonic that sound sweet.

Major pentatonic tends to make you sound country if anything.

To be honest most of what you'll find in their stuff is plain ol' natural minor.

You'll need to swot up up on the notes on the fretboard, major scale and it's intervals to be in a position to learn it properly though.

early priest uses a lot of minor penatonics, after that, just pick any minor scale
#12
whats the best way to start learning modes. I have very little experience with them. Also, what do you think is the best way to learn the neck of the guitar?
#13
Learn all your pentontic positions in the same key (5 different shapes)

learn all 7 modes in the same key....you can use these different positions as a map to solo ALL over the fretboard (but listen closely to the tonal qualities of each mode)

alternate scales: Harmonic and Melodic minor, "Spanish" dominant Phrygian and diminished scales
