Minor thirds.

That applies to both the half-whole and the whole-half.

Lima beans. Colored greens. Peachy keen. Veggietales.


In my restless dreams...
I see that town.
Silent Hill.
You promised you'd take me there again someday.
But you never did.

Well, I'm alone there now.
In our 'special place'...
Waiting for you.

Isn't the entire diminished scale made up of minor thirds?

Yep. Actually it's two diminished seventh chords (stacked minor thirds) a half-step (or a whole-step depending on your perspective) apart.

So you have C Eb Gb Bbb(A) and D F Ab Cb(B). Put together this is C D Eb F Gb Ab A B, which is the whole-half scale on C, Eb, Gb, or A, or the half-whole scale on D, F, Ab, or B.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

Ugh nevermind. That makes perfect sense. I was trying to use bigger intervals as you would in the major or minor scales but that just turned out harmonizing tritones. Minor 3rds sounds good. Lol. Thanks

Yeah a tritone is just two minor thirds, so you should think in terms of minor thirds.
