I want to write a lead over the chord progression I have. How would I go about doing this? My progression is:

A#/Bbm F#/Gb Fm
---1---------2----------1-----
---2---------2----------1-----
---3---------3----------2-----
---3---------4----------3-----
---1---------4----------3-----
---X---------2----------1-----

Would I just pick notes out of the natural minor scale in the key of A#/Bb?
#3
A#/Bbm F#/Gb f Major not f minor
---1---------2----------1-----
---2---------2----------1-----
---3---------3----------2-----
---3---------4----------3-----
---1---------4----------3-----
---X---------2----------1-----

Steve Vai
Joe Satriani

as a starting point yes.


I am confused as to what you mean. Elaborate?

You would actually use Bb harmonic minor. This is because each of the chords belong to that scale, and the progression resolves to Bbm.

This man speaks the truth. The dominant chord is F major in this case, whereas to use Bb natural minor would require an Fm chord.

harmonic is the only other ditonic scale apart from major correct? what are the names of the harmonic modes

No, the natural minor scale is diantonic. Why are you asking in this thread? Read the theory sticky.
