Locrian mode

The Ionian mode is one of the seven modes. As you can see the B Locrian have the same notes as in C Major but the tonic start at B. The chord built from the tonic in this case is also diminished, such as Bdim that includes B, D, F.

The diminished character gives the Locrian scale a rare sound and it is probably most used in jazz. See also Super Locrian Scale.
