I'm going to assume you're referring to minor pentatonic and not major, in which case Dorian is always a good alternative. I think Paul Gilbert uses a scale he developed which is a fusion of blues and dorian scales called the 'hip scale', or something like that when he shreds. Or did I just completely make that up - anyone know any more about that?

I use that all the time. Except with a few variations like

e-----------5--6--8---------------------

The Harmonic minor mixed in with some tri tone always sounds good in solos IMO.

I basically use minor pentatonics,
natural minor, harmonic minor,
natural major, blues scale, and the tri tone scale whatever thats called.

Sometimes I mix in th eighth tone Spanish scale which is similar to harmonic minor.
