Robben Ford likes to use the diminished half/whole scale in the 4th bar of a 12 bar blues.
A7 forth bar................................................................l D7 fifth bar
------------5--8--5--6------5----------------------------l---
-----5--8----------------7------8--7------5-------------l--7
-6--------------------------------------8------6--5------l--5
--------------------------------------------------------8--l--7
------------------------------------------------------------l--5
------------------------------------------------------------l---

This is also very cool to use over a static I7 chord or I7#9, ala Robben
Experiment.
