The Diminished Seventh Chord

This is where a diminished 7th (A) is added to a diminished triad.

For C this would give us the notes: C Eb Gb A

Intervals: 1st - b3rd - b5th - bb7th (relative to major scale degrees - a 'double flat' means flatten by a tone rather than a semitone, i.e. move that note 2 frets lower instead of one)

This popular jazz chord would be written as C dim7 or C°7.

From the lowest to highest string we are playing the following combination of notes:

C Gb A Eb

NB omit the top and bottom strings - use thumb muting etc if you wish.
