how do you know which scale you need to use for a solo?
#3
i am not to sure about this either i think it depends on what your opening chord is not sure though.

Yes, it depends on your starting chord. If it's a minor chord, you start with the scale at the fret of the minor chord (If it was A minor, for example, you would play the pentatonic scale at the 5th fret- which is the A note on the sixth string.)

Just write a solo. I rarely ever use a scale that I think would work. I just slowly find notes that work and phrase them how i like it.

Bzzzt! Wrong answer. Thank for playing.

You look at the key signature and the chord progression and use scales based
on that depending on how you want to sound. Generally the scales you'd base
a solo on have a number of notes in common with the key and/or chord. There's
no single scale that you necessarily have to use. Pentatonics are the most
common. Probably because it's the first and only scale most know how to use
with some minimal skill.
