Hi guys, any ideas about chord progressions of backing tracks for solos?
Generally I need some progression in natural minor.

root-b7th-b6th-b7th is used to much and sounds boring
root-5th-b6th-b7th sounds simillar

b6th-root-b7th-4th is nice for pentatonic runs over it
Any ideas?

I've been digging a i-VII-v-iv progression lately. It's got the familiarity and resolution of a i-iv-v, but it gets broken up a little bit by the VII.

I take it you're a Maiden fan from your title. Iron Maiden generally have some good standard minor progressions under their solos, look them up.

That ain't bad, I tried the i-VII-v-iv-v pattern.

Another idea is to fill the 4th quarter of the 4/4 measure with an root# (b2nd)
Zakk Wylde does this. Or even with an 7th (a bit harmonic-minor).

I want these patterns to improvise solos on them.
