  • Help with this dim chord

    key of A, here is the verse progression...

    A - A7

    D - F#dim

    A - F#m

    B - E


    The chord is xx1212, would you call that F#dim? Need to give bass player a lead sheet.

    Cool that you have a bassist who can "walk" along a true Diminished chordscale. (-;

    Your key is in sharps, so probably F#dim is the correct notation... but it depends overall on where your chord progression is "going".

        Of course, it won't help you chose among correct names, but I find that Eddie Boston's Chorderator suite (free version online) is very helpful... in this case, you could use his Chord Designer for coming up with a list of potentially correct names. 


        This is what it gives for the xx1212 chord above...
