    Yes, an answer is, as Bob, Jim & Adriano have shown, the Diminished 7th chord! "How does that work, then?", I hear you all cry (in my dreams) ... The diminished 7th (or Dim7) chord is comprised of a root, minor 3rd, diminished 5th (i.e. a...(more)

    Sorry Adriano! I think I'm still being affected by someone whose name <i>shall not be mentioned</i> in this thread ...

    Congratulations on the first correct answer, Bob! Actually, that also was the <i>first</i> answer; that didn't take long ...

    Ok, to start the ball rolling ... Q. What chord (shape) formed on the guitar fretboard allows for the creation of (at least)       <i>four different</i> dominant 7th chords by moving only a <i>single</i> finger (per chord) ?

    That's surely no attempt at all Jim - it's practically a conquest! So what if Tommy is the finest and hardest working acoustic guitarist on the planet; that still leaves second place up for grabs ... ;-) Any one of Tommy's dozens of subtle nua...(more)

    Thanks Jim! It's been a while since I visited these. Much information is readily available, for example the Major/minor triads and associated seventh chords for each degree (mode) of the Major scale. Of particular note is the pattern of tones ...(more)

    Hi Jon, Just restoring the balance by responding to your thread as well as Andy's - wouldn't want to appear to be taking sides ...
