Hey guys. Just a question for all you theory guys

What scales and modes would you integrate to solo over the following progressions:

Cmin7 /Cmin7 chromatic walk down to.....
F#7 /F#7 back to cmin7

Then the part i was curious about is

Cmin7 /Eb13 / F7 / Gadd #5 /
Cmin7 /Eb13 / F7 / Ab13/ Gadd#5 / Cmin7

still working on the rest!!
BTW:
Gsus saves! :shock:

As for a single scale to use over all of that, I'd try a half-tone, whole tone scale. Star on C and go half step, then whole step...
C C# D# E F# G A A# C
might sound kinda bizarre but I'm sure you could tweek it to your liking.

I would be more likely to treat each change as it's own 'chord" to play over and see what notes are common and where the passing tones are. I don't call the modes/scales the same as most on this board, so this is my version below.

Cmin7(C Dorian---C to C using Bb major) /Eb13 (C minor/Eb major/Eb Dorian) / F7 (F Blues)_/ Gadd #5 (harmonic Minor without a flat 3rd----whatever that's called).....etc.

the diminished scale mttourpro recommends does work, but I would go with a different idea.

I'm thinking a combination of C blues and Cm

C - D - Eb - F - F# - G - A - Bb - C

E-----8-----10--11--
B-----8-----10--11--
G--7--8-----10--11--
D--7--8-----10------
A-----8--9--10------
e-----8-----10--11--
