A John Coltrane Diminished lick.

I will add more diminished material later, I'm short for time right now.

Credit for this goes to Dave Clark, a Montreal Clarinetist and Saxophonist and teacher at Vanier College.

Note that the chords can be interchanged, this line can be used over any of those 4 chords because they all use the same fully diminished 7th chord.
