Hey i was just wondering if i can get some advice on a song i'm in the process of writing. i have very little knowledge in theory but im trying to pick some up.

the chords as of now are:

F C E (x2)
Cm E Am (x2)

C E Am

Am I following any chord progression whatsoever? It sounds pretty good to me
Also, how would I go about choosing a scale to do the lead/solo?

for the solo just jump around the neck and find something that sounds good/right
C major or a minor scale for a solo if its draped over the chorus, the verse wud be more difficult...
for the first half of the verse and chorus use the A melodic minor( a minor with a major 6th and 7th added) scale second half A blues it will allow you to explore various scale systems making exotic yet melodious shredage

how did you decide on which scales would fit in? or is to complicated without me knowing alot of theory? i know basic theory from piano
