Diminished Dementia

This is an E diminished scale sequence. I like to alternate pick this sequence, but feel free to play it any way you like. You can use this run over a Edim7 chord or a D# altered dominant chord.

This is an A diminished run. I use alternate picking over Adim7 or G# altered dominant.

This is also A diminished.

This is a Bb diminished four note per string legato lick. Use this with a Dim7 chord of the same root or an altered dominant who’s root is down a half step. Are you beginning to see a formula here?

Here are some Dim 7 arpeggios, using a two, one, two technique. Pay attention to the picking pattern. It is hard to name this arpeggio, because any note in it could be considered a root. I would play this lick over an E Phrygian dominant rhythm.

This is also a sequence of diminished 7 arpeggios, this time using 3 notes per string legato technique and string skipping. I would play this over a D Phrygian dominant rhythm.
