I know how to improvise in the blues scale in a "minor" or blues chord progression but what scale would you use to solo in a major chord progression?
I want to be able to improvise solos that sound "major" ex. the first Comfortably Numb solo, Knockin' on Heaven's Door solo (Guns N' Roses version), etc..

I would suggest using the corresponding D major pentatonic scale. It's more prefered for people new to improvising.

Generally the chord progression underneath will make your progression sound major, not the scale you choose.

Aren't the pentatonics some what minor though? I personally would just use a major scale.

No, the major pentatonic is major - 1 2 3 5 6 are the most consonant notes you can play in a major key, and that's why the major pentatonic scale is constructed as such.

I missed the part where he said "major pentatonic" and just assumed it was the minor. My bad guys.
