hey im getting prety good at improving with the blues pentatonic and the natural minor scale, which i know are widely used by alot of people, but i was also wondering some other scales some people used. some of the artists i would be interested knowing the scales would be the eagles, eric clapton, metallica, scorpions, hendrix. and maybe some more bluesy scales. thx alot, a link to these scales would be great. the scales used in hotel california would be much apreciated.

Other than Metallica who'll use a bit more exotic stuff like the modes and harmonic minor as well, the artists you've mentioned tend to use the exact same scales you've been using...although you could throw the major petatonic in there too for Eagles stuff.
Harmonic minor is used a lot in metal/metalcore (maybe some other genres but i wouldn't know)
dang so if they use the same stuff i do then i cant think of anyting original to play, any suggestions on that. it seems when i play i can only think of other songs and other riffs and stuff. i can never think of my own stuff.
