you could use the g major scale II postion of the e minor pentatonic. or the d major II postion of b minor pentatonic, that is if you want to make it in major. You could use b minor pentatonic if you want to make it minor/blues feel to it. if you added at least one sharp somehow, you could make it a different key by using the circle of fifths.

I could give you an incredibly long lesson in answer to your question, but haven't got the time at the moment. I imagine that A chord at the end of the progression sounds a bit weird, but hey it's your song!
You are correct in saying you should use the Gmajor scale, but more directly, the modes from Gmajor. I won't explain them all now, there'll be a very clever person reading this who can do that instead!
Here's what you can play:

Dmaj chord: D Mixolydian
Bmin chord: B Phrygian
Cmaj chord: C Lydian
Amaj chord: A Ionian/A Dorian (anyone else reading this who knows, Amaj doesn't fit into Gmajor so scale is debatable-please do tell!)

Use the 'guitar scales' tool at the top of the page.

Regards,
Afro

none of the chords are G, so are you sure the key is G?

You are right. there's no G chord, but C (CEG), D(DF#A) and Bm(BDF#) have the notes found in G major scale. A(AC#E) is a little out of whack because it has a major third (C#). Try using G major scale/ ionian mode for D, Bm, and C and the when u r in A, use the major scale but use minor third instead of major 3rd.. i dont know how it will sound but just give it a go. maybe it will sound good.

i think it's just in D major with the C beeing a bVII chord, it's used sometimes to replace the VIIth diminished chord :)
