Dominant Diminished Scales

The Dominant Diminished Scale consists of eight notes, and therefore belongs to the category of octatonic scales. It is also a so-called symmetrical scale since the intervals are consistent. The formula is half tone, whole tone throughout the scale, hence the reason it is sometimes called the Half-tone/Whole-tone Scale.
