I was reading a lesson in GuitarONE mag about Diminished scales. I was wondering when can you actually apply these? Do they only work over diminished chords? How far from the V7 chord should it generally be played? Half step, whole step, other? Also, say you are playing in something like Am Pentatonic, and you end your lick on Ab and slide into A. Does this type of thing always work? I posted this elsewhere, but I got back so many different views on it, that it was getting really confusing. Thanks!
