harmonic minor, natural minor, phrygian harmonic minor (jewish or spanish-gypsy), phrygian, i like to use dorian. very sad and mellow but still great for metal!

In that case you really need to spend some time learning about scales - it's not simply a case of "here's a tab, now I can use a scale".

Have a read of Josh Urban's Crusade articles oin the columns section.

Learn major scale harmony. There is absolutely no point in you heading off and learning Phrygian etc without understanding major scale harmony and modes.
