Couldn't understand it. The author doesn't bother to define it, just confuses by waffling about chords and then some partial definitions.
I think the point of the ex. was to be able to play the dim scale without the notes, as long as you know the dim arpeggios.Or you could just play and learn the 3 diminished scales from music notation, memorise them, put them into arpeggios, patterns, play some diminished scale studies and soon they become second nature just like any other scale
Yeah I watched that, very useful if you are talking how to use the dim scale in jazz. But I don't think the thread was aimed at the dim scale in a jazz context. You could tell by the language he uses, very simple step by step. Probably aimed at the student who needs to learn his scales for an exam.

Well I am looking at this as how a teacher could help his student for an up coming exam.I lost interest pretty quickly I must admit... personally I feel it's better to learn the scale then the arpeggios then work them into patterns to learn them inside out and upside down

But it's interesting how we look at something and think because it is no help to us, it is of no use to anyone else. It obviously has helped the guy that started the post. He also has taken the time to share it, thinking it could help another member. Not a selfish act.
Yes great that he has shared it if it helps people but I was wondering how likely it is that people learn an arpeggio before they learn a scale?
Very likely. When you talk about the whole tone scale. Talking from a classical point of view.
PS. Or even the diminished scale.LOL
PS. In fact I've never practiced the diminished scale,as a classical musician, but I can zoom up and down the broken dim arpeggios, as quick a a gypsy czardas. On the Clarinet.
Any body got an asprin. My brain hurts.
That first bit never made much sense to me on woodwind or written but when I saw it on a keyboard it's very obvious. Perhaps a picture of a keyboard would help get a handle on it.
