    D minor pentatonic
    D minor blues scale
    D dorian
    D aeolian
    D melodic minor

    Any of the above might be appropriate.
    I think it would depend on the chords, harmony, and style...... @Stratafied do you have a song in mind?

    I can't solo, or even play in the key of D minor. It's such a sad key, I break down in tears.

    Chords, scales, and melodies are used in improvisation -- taught to me in the Jazz/Rock workshop class I took at City College San Francisco during the dark ages when there were no computers at home. I think they were teaching stuff like basic, fortran and assembler (or something like that) back then. Not sure if you still needed two floors or one for the computer.

    You’re teasing right?

    Fmajor is the relative major to Dminor. All the same notes.

    please go learn some theory.
    see the little face?
    the f major scale(ionian) is the same thing as the d minor(aolian) scale, just starting on a different note.
    these are all the same damn scale, just starting on different notes.
    f ionian
    g dorian
    a phrygian
    bflat lydian
    c mixolydian
    d aolian
    e locrian
    i can play all these scales in d minor. (i say all these scales....its the same scale)
    plus, a whole lot more!!!!!! just pay a separate fee!!!!
    or, you COULD just be messin with me, which is cool.
