comment Uses for the Prometheus scale?
@Shev - you're right. Prometheus =Lydian dominant -minus the perfect fifth. The OP mentions both, so I thought I'd put my tuppence-worth in. Suppose one writes a piece in a major key. Is there a compunction to use every single note available ?...

comment Confused about diminished chords for guitar
thanks, that makes sense, it's from a mode of the harmonic minor, rather than directly from the minor itself?

comment Confused about diminished chords for guitar
Not sure about the harmonic minor reference - there's no b5 or bb7 in it.There's a b6 and a maj 7, not the same.But glad you mentioned the m7b5 name.

comment How do I play this?
I think you're spot on with 'let it ring'. Often with guitar music, it sounds better to do this, if all the notes constitute a chord. I've found it in exam pieces (written out without looking too complex)- a pupil, who was taught by someone else, played exactly 'as writ' and it sounded quite disjointed. Letting certain notes ring for longer than written made it smooth out well.
