So, I'm in the middle of writing a song....but I'm having a problem. I'm writing a song and I'm looking for a cool minor scale to base my solo off/out of...any suggestions? It's in C Major so the minor key would be A minor...also any little licks you wouldn't mind me using would be appreciated. Thanks!
Add the blue note, miss out some of the scale notes, add it with pentatonic maybe.

Why not try some of the other modes, like the mixolydian and lydian? Raise the 4th for lydian and flatten the 7th for mixolydian on the C major scale.
