I'm needing a scale for a solo with the chords open drop d, A sharp minor and C major

i was trying to play the e harmonic scale over it but it sounds wrong, would i be right in saying if i move the scale box 2 notes up the fretboard it will be the A harmonic scale?

and will this scale work over the aforementioned chords

cheers

I'm guessing by "drop D" you mean a D power chord? Try D minor pentatonic or natural minor.
#3
yeah the lower d power chord rather than the d in the 5th position

I can provide samples of the riff and ideas on the scale I'm using for reference if needed

by that i guess you mean a D5, A#m and C.

The notes in the chords make these notes: D, E, F, G, A, A#, C, C#,

That's D minor with a C# (aka the harmonic minor note, raised seventh). If you tune to drop d and chunk on the open low string, you're in the key of d, not e.
