Scale is up to you, really depends on the mood of the song. Minor scales are more sad/dark, major are kinda' happier. You usually want to start a solo in the beginning of a progression, in your case, F.

there are several scales you can use, depending on the mood you want to set will decide on which scales will work best. use minor scales for darker sounding solos and major scales for a more upbeat song. you can use any of the scales in F C D and Bb, play around with them to see which you like the best.

If you don't know how to get from a chord progression to a scale then you don't know basic theory, check out "The Crusade"
