Because these are power chords, you have a tremendous amount of flexibility here, but the Bb suggests that this is really a D minor progression. (If you were D G A and B you'd be in D major territory).

So the Dm scale or the Dm pentatonic should work well. Because Bb is a note that's not in the pentatonic scale, you may find the full minor more satisfying, but there's no one right answer here. I recommend soloing in the pentatonic until you've comfortable with it, then adding in those other notes.

this confuses me; are you telling me to change the scale for every chord?


exactly what mdc is telling you...ahh...may not meet the moderators standards of communication on this board...which is quite a feat when you think about it...

You'll naturally be doing that anyway if you play the D Harmonic Minor Scale. The change in harmony will dictate.

No need to freak out dude, I was just having a "moment". Stick with D Minor Pentatonic.
