    I sometimes add a diminished scale and resolve back to the D minor scale.

    There are lots of possible Dm chord progressions, from jazz to who knows what. Are there vocals to work around or is it a boring twenty minute blues fretw*nk?

    The question is too vague. I was serious in asking, whats the question?

    There are 3 contexts for D minor.

    Depending upon the mode, the chord progression matters. Context matters.

    Dorian



    Phrygian



    Aeolian. (Natural minor)

    Took words out of my mouth. (except fretw*nk, that one I'll add to my vocabulary lol)

    I try to always play the changes, and go for the chord tones. I know it's cheesy and pedestrian, but me likes it...

    If I'm thrown in the fire (something that doesn't happen anymore), on stage without any notion of the progression and without any bars to listen and look at the bass player, I'd play super safe and go D Minor Pentatonic. Call me crazy, but the lead guitarrist doesn't get the luxury of unnoticed mistakes.

    Also, depending on your local jurisdiction, you're only allowed to play in D Minor if you're suffering from some documented major grief. :whistling:

    I would see what other chords are being used, then use that to decide whether to play D Dorian, D Phrygian, D Aeolian or something else.

    These are the suite of chords I choose from in Dm. I always solo in D Aeolian

    Dm, Edim, Fmaj, Gm, Am, Bbmaj, Cmaj, and the 7th’s too.

    But I’m a weirdo :cool:

    Ok ok ok............you win, all you clever dick guys here have given me one great Phrygian pounding headache that has become a real pain in the Aeolian with all this theory stuff.

    Think I'll continue to just play notes that sound "right" with whatever is going on musically at the time. As long as its in the key of "H sharp" LOL

    thats because those chords are in the key of Fmaj, and D IS aeolian in Fmaj.
    of course, i would play in A phrygian.:sneaky::sneaky::sneaky::p
