The Half-Whole Diminished scale is commonly applied to functional progressions such as the II-V-I as well as over non-functional Altered Dominant vamps that include the natural 6th/13th degree, and where the scale will give a darker and more atmospheric sound. It’s a common sound in jazz, fusion and progressive modern rock and metal styles.
