Not only do they naturally occur on the 7th tone of any major scale, they are used as great preparers for dominant chords on the 5th tone.
If you play gospel, you’ve undoubtedly used a half-diminished 7th chord on the 2nd tone of the scale to lead to the 5th.
By going to the 7th tone of any scale and playing every other note, you’ll form the half-diminished 7th chord. Simply play B + D + F + A (every other note of C major scale) and you’ve got yourself a B half-diminished 7th chord.
The first three notes of a half-diminished 7th chord in root position look identical to the diminished triad.
And diminished chords are formed by simply stacking a bunch of minor third intervals together.

A rest tells you that you are to stop playing for the entire amount that the rest calls for. Start practicing all the scales with both hands, practice all the chord inversions, train your ear. For example, in the chord above (B half-diminished 7th), if you take off the last note, you’re left with B + D + F, which is a B diminished triad.
Instead of another minor third like the B diminished 7th chord (B + D + F + Ab), you play a major third, which is four half steps.
