  • 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".

    Every paint-stroke takes you farther and farther away from your initial concept. And you have to be thankful for that. Wayne Thiebaud

        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...
