I want to compose a song in the C major scale. The chords in that scale are:

C Dm Em F G Am Bdim

If I use say a Gm chord instead of a G major does my song still stay in the C major scale?

How do I play the B diminished chord? I need the fret numbers or a chord diagram.

If you use a Gm, it isn't in C major anymore, but it can be F major if you don't use the Em and Bdim, but you can also use Bb and Edim.

x2343x would be Bdim.

no, Gm means that there is a Bb, which there isn't.


B diminished looks like this:
 
e----------------------------------|
B---3-----------------------------|
G--4------------------------------|
D--3------------------------------|
A--2------------------------------|
E----------------------------------|

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

The song can still be in C major, but it won't be completely diatonic.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
