Ok, just looking for some suggestions from people much better at this than I am (that would be YOU). What would be a good scale / mode to use writing a lead over an Em, A sus2, C chord progression? You can hear what I have so far in my profile: http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/furin121/music/ .

If it's not too much to ask could you also explain why that scale or mode would be good to use? I'm still very much in the beginning stages of composing and theory so I'd like to understand the reason/s. But I'd be more than happy to take any suggestions you are willing to offer.


THIS^ solved EVERY of my theory questions... found it on some UG thread^^

Well something along the lines of a casual steve vai sound (if that makes sense). Little rocking but somewhat calm and relaxed.
E natural minor scale should do you fine.

Thanks for the input guys. Oddly enough I have that site you mentioned already bookmarked but had never seen that part of it. Guess I should poke around sites more for the good info .
