_dim7 is a type of chord, and there are two diminished scales, the whole-half and the half-whole. So what do you want?

A dim7 is basically -

R - b3 - b5 - bb7

A - C - Eb - Gb

those notes all over the neck!

EDIT - i agree with what SINAN is saying, i imagined you were going to arpegiate... so those notes will work.

A whole half diminished scale has the pattern WHWHWHWH pattern, while a half-whole diminished scale has the pattern HWHWHWHW.

Both scales have the chord notes of a dim7 chord, but have different notes with the chord notes.

it also appears on the 7th not of the harmonic minor scale

the mode of the harmonic minor associated with it would be "altered diminished seventh"


1 b2 b3 b4 b5 b6 bb7

in your case
A Bb C Db Eb F Gb
(see the Bb harmonic minor in there?)

knock yourself out over these 2 shapes (for E°7 but....read below)
---12---9-------------------------------------------
----------11----------------------------------------
--------------12--9---------------------------------
--------------------11-8----------------------------
--------------------------10--7---------------------
----------------------------------9---6---3---0-----

-------------------------------------------
-17-14-----------------------------------------
-------15------------------------------------
----------17-14--------------------------------
----------------16-13--------------------------
----------------------15--12-------------------

(and some hammerons and stuff in between if you want to sweep it)


since diminished 7th chord is just stacked minor thirds it repeats itself every 3 frets

and along with this, the inversions of the dim7 chord are dim7 chords themselves too
eg: Edim7 and Gdim7 and Bbdim7 and Dbdim7 are all the same group of notes (enharmonically at least)
