Yeah, just wondering what scale i would use to solo in Dr Feelgood- Motley Crue.
Im not too familier with how scales work but the song is in D...i think?
Does this mean i can use any scale i choose in the key of D?

Pretty much, I'd stick with major and minor pentatonics for that sort of stuff though.

why not other scales?
Because Mick Mars played the D minor pentatonic in the song.

He's actually tuned down a full step, so he was using the Em pentatonic/blues shapes in the song, but when tuned down, we hear Dm rather than Em.
