I already commented on soundcloud :) But about the diminished chord
(if you know this already, please ignore):

You can replace almost any dominant chord with a diminished a half
step above. And since they are so symmetric you can change the root
around even more..

C A7 Dm7 G7

C A#dim Dm7 G#dim

C C#dim Dm Bdim

C Edim Dm Ddim

etc.. Also replace any consonant chord with a dom7, like with the Am7
- -> A7. Take the Dm7 -> D7 -> D#dim:

C Edim D#dim Ddim

:) This last example probably takes it a little far and would work
better over a consonant bass instead of the roots of the diminished

Nice tune though,
