Since the tuning is.. weirdish to me, i cant compose a dimished scale in drop B.
How exactly do you write one?
I would be really appreciative if somebody included a diagram.

Thank you guys,

Just play with it, even if it takes ages, just keep going.
I had my Parker put in Drop B but got it changed yesterday, got bored and sick of it so went back to D tuning for CKY songs haha

construct diminished scales on standard first, and you will understand it in dropped.


e
b
g
d
a 4 - 7
E 5 -8

anything diminished is movable, so you can use this "pattern" any where for those cool diminished runs followed by crushing rhythms.
and..learn theory.

This is fairly simple.. All you have to do is think about it in a way that will make sense to yourself.. For me it's like this: Anytime the E string is dropped a step lower than everything else, that means that in order to play things the same way I would in standard, I have to move everything I do on the E string up 2 frets.

Tab example:

Diminshed run in standard -

E--------------------------7-10-
B---------------------6-9--------
G----------------4-7-------------
D-----------3-6------------------
A------2-5-----------------------
E-1-4 ---------------------------

In Drop:

E--------------------------7-10-
B---------------------6-9--------
G----------------4-7-------------
D-----------3-6------------------
A------2-5-----------------------
E-3-6----------------------------

Also.. Take the guy above me's advice... Learn theory.
It's the key to doing all this **** and actually understanding what you're doing.

Also, where as Bring Me The Horizon may be a great example of the diminished scale, they are horrible guitarists (please, trust me.. I've met them and played with them..) and know nothing about theory. Harsh, I know.. But still. I'm just trying to help a guitarist out.

Easy, just write down in a piece of paper the tuning of the guitar, and locate the notes that are in a diminished arpeggio. Learn the pattern and move it around. Of course if you want to play with that tuning all the time memorize the notes. This works with any scale/arpeggio

Or, just diminished, take any note and start going up 3 semitones and looking for the same sounds on other strings, then learn the pattern.

I reccomend the first one!
