Hey guys, lately I have been playing a lot of death songs. I know the rhythm parts to the songs...

Perennial Quest
Symbolic
Bite The Pain
Choke On It
Flesh And The Power It Holds
Pull The Plug
Voice Of The Soul
1,000 Eyes
Empty Words
Genetic Reconstruction
Spirit Crusher
Without Judgement

That's quite a lot of solos to be working on, but I was wondering what scales did Chuck Schuldiner use? I figure out most of what I know by ear, so knowing the proper scales would be real helpful. I'm shure there's a few Death fans out theree!

a lot of harmonic minor
Fender Strat Deluxe
Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan
Ibanez Artcore
Fender Twin Reverb silverface
Roland JC120
Pedals

Awesome thank you. I never learned that scale and that would probably explain why it's so confusing.

there's probably some more in there, i don't really listen to Death anymore and when i did i wasn't nearly as good at recognizing scales as i am now, but that one always stuck out. a lot of metal players use the diminished scale as well, that's also one to know
Fender Strat Deluxe
Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan
Ibanez Artcore
Fender Twin Reverb silverface

Pretty much just minor and harmonic minor, occasionally throwing in a phrygian dominant phrase. I'd start off by learning the first Overactive Imagination solo from the Individual Thought Patterns album.
Current gear:
Carvin CT6M
TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s
Laney Ironheart 60w tube amp

Natural minor scale, but with a major seventh.
So in A harmonic minor it would be:
A B C D E F G#
