Go here: http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/guitar_scales.php

To see the scale and intervals. Then go to "scales to chords" to see the chords you use with it.

Ugh...

When I brought up this page, so much fail dumped out of my computer screen and all over my hands, severely damaging my ability as a musician.

The diminished scale is a scale made up of notes a minor 3rd apart.


That's a diminished arpeggio .

A diminished TRIAD arpeggio is 1 b3 b5

A diminished SEVENTH arpeggio is 1 b3 b5 bb7, which is, as you say, a sequence of minor thirds.

The Whole-Half diminished scale is 1 2 b3 4 b5 b6 bb7 7
The Half-Whole diminished scale is 1 b2 b3 3 b5 5 bb7 b7

Note that both of those scales contain a diminished seventh arpeggio, hence the name.

^Why isn't the half-whole b4 and b6 instead of 3 and bb7? I know BGC made a thread about b4 a while back but I can't find it.

I think you mean 6, not b6.
You could treat is as a b4 and a 6 if you want. HW contains both a dominant chord (1 3 5 b7) and a diminished chord (1 b3 b5 bb7), which is why I named the intervals the way I did.
