Can I see an example of an improvisation in Am Pentatonic Scale..
just wanna study..
look at live versions of these songs..
they are centered around the Am scale

crossroads, while my guitar gently weeps - clapton
i can't quit you, heartbreaker, stairway to heaven.. zeppelin
californication - red hot chili peppers
Tribute - tenacious D
fly like an eagle - steve miller band
listen to SRVs texas flood for a good solo in Gb (he tunes down a half step).
while my guitar gently weeps is in Em. sorry for being such a jerk...

im afraid its not...
you sure, cause me and my dad were jamming to it just like 30 minutes ago. But, he does play by ear, so he just happened to play it in Em. It probably is Am. Im just too lazy to listen to the song. and i left my ipod in the car
yeah, it is in Am, i just checked the tab. Check out paul gilbert's version on youtube. just type in yellow matter custard, the name of the band. Its f**kin awesome!
Basically every rock song in the 70s uses the A blues scale. Pick a rock song from then and you've got a good chance of finding what you want.

A few examples off the top of my head:
Zep's "Black Dog"
Zep's "Stairway to Heaven"
Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4"
Why limit yourself to A minor? You can take pretty much any pentatonic scale and transpose it to that key. Like any SRV or something. Little Wing is pretty epic, but in E minor.
Listen to Blackmore
He dosn't play the leads for songs the same ever again.
So bascailly what you hear on a CD is all improv.lol

you know...that song for that rockband video game commercial
Highway star or sumin like that.
