Chords – (Week 3 – Mon) – Diminished Chords

The Chord which starts on the 7th tone of the C Major Scale is a Diminished Chord

vii = B dim

It is diminished because it’s a minor 3rd stacked on a minor 3rd.
(minor chords are minor 3rd on the bottom and major 3rd stacked on top)

 

vii-7 half diminished = B-7(b5)

This is a beautiful chord that is ‘unresolved’ which can be used as a tension chord.
It is the Root – minor 3rd – minor (or flat) 5th – and minor 7th
