So i've been working on this song, so far the chords are basically (in order): Cm A# G# Gsus G
then the solo rythym is Cm G# Fm G
note: don't think it really matters, but all the chords are arpeggiated

I've been working on the solo, but have only been using the Dorian and Pentatonic scale. What other scales would sound good with these chords. I'm going for kind of a sad sound (hence the minor chords), but as long as it sounds 'pretty' i'm happy.

C minor natural and/or harmonic, I don't think modes are revelant here.

I would use C minor like bender424 mentioned. I also agree that modes are not relevant.

Since C minor goes:

C - D - Eb - F - G - Ab - Bb


I would prefer to present this progression as follows:

Cm Bb Ab Gsus G
Cm Ab Fm G


It's all the same chords, just using enharmonic equivalents (ex: Bb = A#, etc.) -- which is the better way to present the chords when you're trying to analyze it.

what notes would that be? C harmonic, i mean.
(i don't trust most guitar websites when it comes to scales i'd rather ask someone)

To get harmonic minor from natural minor, you always raise the seventh degree (last note) by one-half step.

The Bb becomes a B... so:

C - D - Eb - F - G - Ab - B


This would probably only work over the second progression.

Cm A# G# Gsus G
then the solo rythym is Cm G# Fm G

C natrual minor for the 1st 3 chords C harmonic for the Gsus and G
the solo rhythm part
C natural minor if there is time then a shift to Dorian #4 for the Fm and G

arpeggios would sound good too.
on last tip any of the above scales can be stripped down to pentatonic scales for a more exotic sound.
a good example would be to play the C natural minor scale without the 4th and b7th so ( C,D,Eb,G,Ab,C )

there's also a bridge part that goes.

e--------------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------------
D----1-0----0------------------1----------------------
A--3------1----3----3-1----1--------------------------
E------------------4-------3----------------------------
and repeat.

I've just been holding some bends on this part.
