So I’ve been playing around with the half step whole step diminished scale trying to figure out what to do with it. I find this scale and the whole tone scale so fitting to patterns that it can be hard to come up with anything that doesn’t sound like a musical exercise!
That in mind, I’ve written out a few lines that would work over a diminished chord or over E7, G7, Bb7 and Db7. I have these in mind for jazz/gypsy jazz soloing. Check out the lines Diminished ideas.
