Just goto www.looknohands.com Click on the advanced room. It has every scale and chord in any key printed out in a fretboard diagram.

Or you can look at it like a diminished arpeggio. . .that was Kirk Hammett's big thing in guitar world on his "Betcha Can't Play This."

It is correct Angry Hobbit, just stacked minor 3rds or as one guy said whole half whole half, or half whole half whole, up to the octave. There are really only three diminished scales because it is a symmetrical scale and functions in two different positions, sorry. You have it right I am sure.

Oh, sorry, I guess because Arpeggio doesn't have an abbreviation I didn't know what you were talking about. . . :P. but other than that oh well. I apologize.

Only the 5-6-#7-8 degrees of the scale make up part of the diminshed scale. There are, however, diminished triads at 2nd, 4th, and 7th degrees of the scale.
