Does anybody know what chords sound good when using the diminished scale? I can't find it anywhere

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

You probably don't get a good sound because a Diminished progression (possibly Locrian) hasn't got a stable tonal centre. It's use is rather to draw little phrases, ideas or riffs from it, rather then to use it as a compositional device.

^ on the other hand, he could do something amazing with it.


Agreed. I'm currently venturing into the world of locrian. I believe it''s possible to create something interesting from it.

MY theory is; if it exists it can be molded. I won't stop till I found what it is.

People actually use locrian?

The diminished scale is actually really useful throughout jazz progressions due the the fact that is repeats a minor third up or down.

I hate how everyone says that locrian is useless etc. it's hard to work with, sure, but that doesn't make it stupid.

I didn't mean it's useless. I said it's near impossible to make a MODAL progression on locrian. IE make a progression that resolves to a diminished chord lol.
