Gday,

I only know the penatonics and major scales, but their too happy, whats a nice minor sounding scale for use in freestyling?

dorian, phrygian, aeolian (natural minor), and locrian are all minor tonality scales. locrian is probably the darkest sounding? weird question tho, it all comes down to how you play the scale, not what scale you play.

locrian is the most dissonant (it's not exactly dissonant, but it's not too pleasant for the ear)

well, if you want to learn a minor scale just try the natural minor. Its the same of a major scale, but you begin by the 6th degree.

For example, if you want the A minor scale just play the C major scale but beggining and ending in A.

Diminished scales are good for evil sounds, you might also want to try the phrygian dominant (5th mode of the harmonic mode scales).
