Hi, this is the first time I have actually used a dminished scale to make a melody I like and was wondering what sort of chords I could put behind this? I'm not asking anybody to write music for me, merely to give me a good start to the sort of harmonies I could expect over this sort of melody. The melody is designed as part of a gypsy-like folky piece of music and is:

E|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
G|-12--10--12--13--12--13--15|--13--12----------------13--12|
D|--------------------------------------|------------15--14--15-----------|
A|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E

E|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
G|---12--10--12--13--12--13--15|--16-----15--13--15--------------|
D|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
E E E E E E E E Q E E H

Forgive me, but I do not know how to do the neat 'Code' thing so this makeshift tab'll have to do.

EDIT: And, as expected, it has turned out horribly wrong (the letter marking the length of each note that is), but hopefully someone can still decipher it as they're not too important to answer my question.

Gm seems to go well in the first measure. D#major could also work. Fm seems to work as well, although I originally ruled it out as that means the melody would start on a dissonance (which is usually not good).

The second measure could also be Gm. Fm also works, as long as that E note doesnt fall on the third beat. C7 may work as well, but I dont really like the fact that the bar starts with a dissonant note (Ab makes a m6 with the C7 chord, very dissonant)

Measure 3 is the same as measure 1.

Abm would work over that last measure, but the whole resolving on that Bb thing would be weird (resolving on seconds to the chord underneath is usually a no-no and will sound unresolved). Seeing as it resolves on Bb, I guess your best option is Bb (major or minor, wouldnt really matter), although starting that bar on Cb would be damn weird. I guess D# (could be major, minor or dominant) would work, but you'd still be starting your bar on a dissonant note.
