I was wondering what scales where used in the solos of MoP.

The part before the main solo where the clean part is played, and theres the slow solo over it.
And the main solo.

Em pentatonic one would assume, it is Metallica after all.

I might have read something in a tab book mentioning the Spanish phyrigian scale for the slow interlude but I'm not too sure.

EDIT: If it's in E minor then the relative phrigian would be B, so the B spanish phrygian scale would be ... B C D# E F# G A#

Remember that the scale isn't set in stone, it's set in mud so it can be changed up a little to fit the song better.

The slow solo is predominantly in E minor with a bit of E harmonic minor, the fast solo is also E minor in most places but then just turns pretty chromatic
