if it is eminor 7 to cmaj to d maj to e minor7 then you could play g scale in the 6th mode called the locrian mode so it would start on e and follow the same key signature as g so it would be e-f#-g-a-b-c-d-e

Don't listen to any of these guys, who mention modes in this progression, its just E minor.

Listen to this man. He's right, the whole progression is simply in E minor.

To apply modal thinking over a diatonic chord progression needs alot of thought put into it.
If the way you solo doesnt include thinking about harmonic consonance and dissonance in relation to the chord playing, than you might as well just play the notes of the E minor scale as its alot simpler.

it's kind of miss leading thou...
To simply say play E aerlian over any of those chords and you'll sound okay.
There's notes in that scale that'll cause tension over certain chords if you don't
resovle it and if you resolve it to wrong note to the proceeding chord it'll
sound even worst.
Such as doing hammer and pull of the B and D note while over Cmaj

You still have to cook it even if you play Emin over the entire preogression.

It is sort of misleading though.

If you just play E minor over that whole chord progressoin you'll sound okay.

But there are notes in that scale that will cause tension (as in dissonance) over certain chords. And if you resolve the tension to the wrong note, it'll sound even worst.

For example, hammering on and pulling off from the B and D notes while over Cmaj will cause alot of tension without resolving it. This wont sound too good.

You still have to cook it even if you play Emin over the entire preogression.
Fix'd for everyone else to read.

Yeah sure. Thats exactly what I meant, a note will sound different over chords.

But if you dont have the adequate knowledge about how notes are going to sound different (harmonic dissonance/consonance), you shouldn't worry yourself playing anything other than straight E minor.
