Half Diminished Scale

The half diminished scale is a musical scale more commonly known as "Locrian ♮2", name which avoids confusion with the diminished scales (see octatonic scales) and the half-diminished seventh chord (min. 7, flat 5). It may be considered Mode VI, the sixth mode, of the ascending melodic minor scale. See: jazz scale.

On C the scale is associated with dmi7♭5, which functions as a iio chord in minor. See: chord-scale system.
