Diminished scale

In music, a diminished scale is a scale in which the notes of the scale ascend in alternating intervals of a whole step and a half step. There are only three diminished scales, and a given diminished scale has only two modes (one beginning its ascent with a whole step between its first two notes, while the other begins its ascent with a half step or semitone).
