There are no "best" scales - you choose scales based on what you're playing over and what sound you're aiming for...although arguably even that has more to do with note choice and how you actually use the scale rather than the scale itself.

Here's the list

Major
Minor
Pent Major
Pent Minor
Minor Blues
Major Blues (basically the same as a minor blues played off the relative major)

The reason someone was hostile towards you in their reply, is because the question itself showcased the fact that you dont know what you are talking about - i.e you have no clue about what makes something best , nor do you qualify best. Its like asking what are the best words in the english language, in an attempt to try to learn to communicate with someone. Actually some may view it as laziness or even an attempt to evade theory all together and just "Gimme the answers, I dont want to actually apply myself" like we are some theory vending machine. And frankly, you dont have to evade theory and ask for answers to be spoonfed. You can learn theory.

I don't think you intentionally want to be dumb do you?

Any scale derived from the chromatic scale can be good over the progressions we use.

Start learning theory, with the major scale, and take things from there.

well it IS kind of a silly question. the best scale to solo with is the one that fits the song. but obviously a good place to start is the pentatonic scale. pentatonics are great because they work over almost any style of music and they are great for embelishing as well. i can add notes to it very easily and then come back to the "safe notes" if i get to far out there.

learn your major, minor and pentatonics and you should be set for most music. just worry about those for now. and some theory can only help.
