im pretty sure you could us c major or A minor but that wouldnt be completly correct because those arent the chords of the the key buts its the closest i think

oh what never mind forget what i just said i didnt think those were fingerings

I suggest going to Jguitar.com
you can plug in whatever chords you want, and it'll match it up with a scale
unless, of course, the said chords dont fit into a scale

If you'd like to know how to work it out for yourself, you should learn some theory. This is a good place to start with that.

As for this progression, I'd say it's just different types of E chords. They don't all fit in to one scale, but you should try experimenting with different E scales over each of them.

I go to that website for everything I need to know about a chord or a scale. They have a "Chord Name" thing up there, and you click the notes on a guitar, and it'll tell you what the name of the chord it, most of the time. It has all kinds of scales and the formulas for them, and when you look at chords, it tells you which scales go best with that chord. Check it out.

E minor is kind of looking favourite here, despite the odd bass progression the pull of the E powerchord is just too strong to my ears.
Actually called Mark!
