I've got this song that has this chord progression:

C Eb F
C Bb A

And I need to solo like there's no tomorrow. What scale should I use?


assuming those are power chords, C minor pentatonic or minor blues would work.

- do you have a recording of the song?

Yeah, but what about that A chord? The E and Eb could conflict.

Edit: You know what? Just don't play Eb's over that chord unless you want that diminished sound.

yeah the A chord is a problem... works over the rest. I dont think there is 1 scale that works all the way through.

the 1st 3 chords are C minor for sure.

you could possibly stick with C minor... untill the last chord.

EDIT: if the progression is power chords.... C minor pentatonic until the A chord... use A minor pentatonic/ blues there.

this is just the most obvious option... which is a good place to start. There are other things you could do as well.
