If I dont use any flats/sharps. Do I need to worry about key signature at all? Like if I were to use the A minor scale, over ABCD chords.

.....what?

There are no sharps or flats in a C, if that's what you're asking...
#3
Not quite following. In the key of C Major or A Minor, there aren't sharps and flats. So soloing using a scale of C Major or A Minor would be perfectly fine too.
#4
do you realize that there isn't a key that has ABCD chords (assuming you mean major)
it would be (in C) Amin Bdim Cmaj Dmin

just learn the circle of fifths it takes like a few minutes and saves a lot of time

no sharps/flats IS the key signature for A minor. Whether you want to worry about it or not, is up to you.
shred is gaudy music

So.. it would be ok to use something like the A minor scale (Which has the notes ABCDEFG, and no sharps/flats) and not worry about any kind of key signature?

(Im shocked at all the replies in such a short time, thanks everyone )

it depends entirely on the chord progression, but yes, if you're playing a simple i-vi-iv-v (or whatever) in c major/a minor then yes, the a minor scale would work fine.

HOWEVER if you're using A minor Harmonic the 7th note is taken up a semitone, so you do have a G sharp in that case.
And in A minor Melodic you have two sharps, F sharp and G sharp, on the way up, and then these become naturals again on the way down.

Yes, but harmonic and melodic minor are not keys.

You can play whatever you want in terms of note choice, but if you're in A minor then obviously A minor would always be a sensible choice.
