4. What sort of chord is made from the super locrian scale (the 7th mode of the melodic minor ascending, also called the altered scale) ?

1. F7#11? Let's see... I assume you mean F dominant 7 so F-A-C-Eb and then the # 11 would be B, so right there you'd have F-A-B-C-Eb. So C melodic minor would be my guess. It works out.

2. You mean fully or half diminished? Fully is D#-F#-A-C

3. Bdim7 is B-D-F-Ab, assuming you mean fully diminished...what 7b9 chord...that's a toughie...ohhhh, I see. Ok, you need to say "enharmonically" substituted. We have Ab, which is also G#, THEN you have G#-B-D-F but wait...then there's no b9...I'm afraid I don't know... I tried working from the Ab, but there's no b9.

4. 'fraid I know absolutely NOTHING about superlocrian mode.
