Hey fellas. I'm workin right now on applying a bunch of different scales into my playing and am kind of having trouble. The scales that are giving me a bunch of trouble are the diminished(w-h) and the whole-tone. I can spell all the scales out and can play over them but for some reason when I get to them my brain goes blank. Instantly I forget what notes are in the scale. If I'm just playing by myself and screw up I stop and play through the scale and I can do it fine. When I practice them I play them in different ways as far as just playing them and then I try to play little ideas just using the scale and have no problem. But when I'm actually playing a tune I have a brain fart or somethin. Any thoughts on something that can help me apply some of these scales? Also are there any other places I can use these scales besides on an actual diminished chord? Someone told me that Coltrane used to play pretty much a straight diminished scale up a dominant and stuff but it is Trane. Any ideas? I'm kind of lost with these crappy diminished scales.
