Ex. In most sheet music books, Cdim or C° denotes a diminished seventh chord with C as the root. A diminished triad topped with a diminished seventh. The similarity between these two chords, however, does not end here. Build a root position fully-diminished leading tone seventh chord in E minor. G# and D form a diminished fifth, while B and F also form a diminished fifth. The same rules for resolution apply to this interval. Use a diminished 7 chord on the 6th tone of the scale (also takes you to a 2-chord). The combination of a diminished triad with a diminished seventh above the root yields two interlocking tritones. Each chord member resolves in the same way, but now the tritone between F# and C has been inverted and resolves outward to a sixth. The resolution of a half-diminished seventh chord is similar to that of a fully-diminished seventh chord. A seventh chord is a chord having four notes: a root, third, fifth, and seventh notes. The diminished seventh interval is a minor seventh that has been lowered a half note (identical to a straightforward sixth). Identify the diminished fifths and augmented fourths in the following inverted fully-diminished seventh chords. One between $\hat7$ and $\hat4$, the other between $\hat2$ and $\hat6$: As Example 20–4 demonstrates, every member of the chord forms a tritone with some other member. To create a diminished seventh chord, you start with the diminished triad and then add the dominant seventh after it, too, has been lowered a half step. About • Diminished 7th Chord Note the resulting doubled third in the tonic, which is common after fully-diminished leading-tone chords. In major keys they are half-diminished, but will occasionally include a chromatic b $\hat6$ to make them fully-diminished. Fully diminished is a m3, b5, and diminished 7, for example C Eb Gb Bbb. Unlike viiø7 chords, which typically appear only in major-key contexts, viio7 chords are commonly encountered in both major and minor.

In diminished chords, the major sixth is also known as the diminished seventh. In this case you add the double flat seventh (♭♭7) of the scale. Diminished 7th Do, Me, Se, La (Unfortunately solfège doesn't have a syllable for a diminished 7th, so instead we'll just call it "la," because a major 6th is the enharmonic equivalent of a diminished 7th. How can a fully diminished seventh chord be used to modulate to a foreign key? In music theory, the half-diminished seventh chord is a seventh chord composed of a root note, together with a minor third, a diminished fifth, and a minor seventh. The effect of these two chords is striking, but the voice-leading smooth and consistent with that seen in most tonal Western art music. As we have already seen, fully diminished seventh chords consist of two tritones and therefore require careful treatment due to their strong voice-leading tendencies. There, we examined why the tritone between the root and fifth of the chord requires special attention. The half-diminished seventh chord (ø 7) adds a minor seventh to a diminished triad while the fully-diminished seventh chord (o 7) adds a diminished seventh to a diminished triad. (Refer to Chapter 18 for more information on seventh chords.) Music Chords. They show up for a few seconds, just to annoy you, then, just as quickly, they're gone.

In a major key, on the other hand, the diatonic seventh of a leading-tone chord does not form a diminished seventh. 2a. Table of Standard Interval Progressions. The scale starting on F can be used over F7, Ab7, B7, and D7 chords, illustrated in Ex. The resolution of a half-diminished seventh chord therefore runs a greater risk of parallel fifths: In Example 20–12, the alto ( $\hat2$) and soprano ( $\hat6$) both resolve down by step, resulting in parallel fifths. Disclaimer • dim7 chords are 4 note chords consisting of 3 minor 3rds above the root or tonic, therefore having a root, a minor 3rd, a diminished 5th and a diminished 7th.

As discussed above, however, the fully-diminished viio7 chord contains an additional tritone (between scale degrees $\hat2$ and $\hat6$). There, we discussed several possible resolutions: augmented fourths resolve outward to sixths or in similar motion up to perfect fourths while diminished fifths resolve inward to thirds or in similar motion up to a perfect fifth. The major sixth of a C# Diminished 7th chord is A#. Consider the particularly dissonant chord on the downbeat of m. 2 in the following excerpt: This sonority, a fully-diminished seventh chord built on the leading tone of G minor, is comprised of two interlocking tritones, both of which resolve in the manner described in Chapter 16. The other tritone, the augmented fourth between scale degrees $\hat4$ and $\hat7$ (Bb and E§), resolves in the manner described above: by contrary motion outward to a sixth (Ab and F). Whenever you see the term 'diminished', it implies an interval which is one semitone less than the corresponding minor or perfect interval. An Fsdim7 or Fs”7 is built using the notes Fs-A-C-Ef. The following example compares dominant seventh chords with fully-diminished leading-tone chords in both C major and C minor: As you can see from Example 20–16, fully-diminished seventh chords built on the leading tone have three pitches in common with dominant sevenths (scale degrees $\hat7$, $\hat2$, and $\hat4$). For example, the half-diminished seventh chord built on C, commonly written as Cø7, has pitches C–E♭–G♭–B♭: Musical scores are temporarily disabled. A. swap a G7 chord for a G sharp diminished 7th).

Triads and Seventh Chords. Basic Two-Voice Interval Progressions, 22. Leading-tone seventh chords are constructed by adding a seventh to a diminished triad whose root is scale degree $\hat7$. Because they share three chord members, fully-diminished leading-tone seventh chords typically function as substitutes for dominant seventh chords. C# and G form a diminished fifth, while Bb and E form augmented fourth. The major sixth is down three half-steps from the Root (a minor third down). In other words, a tone borrowed from the parallel key is always required. A popular way of using diminished 7th chords in jazz and other styles of music is to substitute a dominant 7th chord with a diminished 7th chord whose root note is a half step higher (e.g. The following example shows leading-tone seventh chords in both C minor and C major: Both of these chords add a dissonant seventh to an already dissonant triad.

(Remember to use b $\hat6$ in major keys and to raise the leading tone in minor.). Example 20–6 summarizes: The tritone formed by the leading tone and scale degree $\hat4$ usually resolves by contrary motion. In all chords built on the leading tone, scale degree $\hat7$ forms a dissonant tritone with scale degree $\hat4$, a dissonance that must be resolved properly.
