OK, I know you guys get this asked a lot, but I just want some ideas to jam over this progression I made. Yes, it involves the 3 most common chords in guitar history, but I came up with a reasonably catchy song that is fun to play, and for someone with no theory knowledge like myself, it's good enough. What can I use to jam over this? Also, sometimes when I just freestyle jam it, I throw in an F in there as well. Pentatonics are a plus!

Any scale. Just play in the key of G.

Don't those statements contradict eachother? I think what you mean is any mode mode of the G major scale. You could also play E minor ( a mode of G maj.) or E pentatonic minor.
An threadstarter, are those all major chords?

Whether or not the D is major or minor can make a difference. If it's minor, then you can use C Major. If it's major, then you can use G Major.

For the progression to resolve properly, it would have to be D major

Also G Mixolydian, D Mixolydian, C Lydian.

using G mixolydian would work but because the progression includes a D major chord (D F# A), the flat 7th (F) might not sound right.

Over the C and G chords it would sound ok though. If you were using the G major scale, and played the C over the G chord, it could clash with the B in the chord.
