One scale I rarely see appearing in transcriptions of Django's solos is the whole tone scale, yet many of the method books refer to it as being a feature of his improvisations - any thoughts?
With regard to playing, am I correct in thinking they are appropriate to use over dominant 7th chords, and if so, which ones? For example, if you were improvising over a G7th chord, which whole tone scale would you use, and do they bring you back to the I chord?
I believe whole tone scales work in a similar way to diminished scales in that by the nature of the intervals repeating themselves there are only a limited number of truly different whole tone scales, and not the full twelve, as in say major scales.
I like the sound of a whole tone scale, even though they can be difficult to play, so I'd like to know more about where to use them - any answers?
