yeah sorry sorry..was in a rush okay my bad here...it goes like this (the chord progression)
Dm - Gm - Dm - Gm Then Em - Am - Em - Am and then Am - Dm - Abm - Dm Finally C - B - A# - A

So there are 4 phrases which go like...

Dm - Gm - Dm - Gm
Em - Am - Em - Am
Am - Dm - Abm - Dm
C - B - A# - A

afcourse the chorsd might have a 7th...or a diminshed here and there..but thats basically it
what scale i use to solo over this?

You can use arpeggios with some passing tones in there.

The notes of the chord= arpeggio. All around the neck use the notes, add some passing tones too.

Passing tones= notes that arent in the chord, dont hold them for too long.

Learn the mixolydian scale for 7th chords(ex:Bb7), dorian for minors is common to use on seventh chords (not 100% sure). You could use the beebob scale if its a beebob piece. You would use the root as 1 and go 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-b7-8, just like the normal scale but with the extra b7.

So if I were you, I would learn:
D dorian
G dorian
E dorian
A dorian
C mixolydian
B mixolydian
A and A# mixolydian
The beebob scale for your key
Thats all I can give without the key signatute
You prob don't need all at once tho, learn a couple for now i reckon.
does this help??

(Please correct any errors its been a while since my jazz thoery )
