The A major scale and A minor pentatonic scale with or without blue notes would be two obvious choices.

/thread. Try to avoid the major seventh of the major scale. Instead alter it to a minor seventh.

Basically, you have a lot of possible notes, including 1 2 b3/3 4 5 6 b7 (as well as a ton of passing tones in between there).
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.
