Improvising with the Diminished Scale
I’ve often said that if I could have only one harmonic concept to work with for the next ten years I would have to pick the diminished scale. The diminished scale perfectly outlines the tritone relationship between two sets of chord progressions, which is one of the most important, if not THE most important, concept in modern jazz harmony.
