Introduction

During this course, we complete our collection of 7th chords by tackling the Diminished 7th and Minor 7th flat 5 chord. These chords are commonly seen in jazz and can be used to create tension that resolves to a variety of chords. We then move on to harmonising an entire scale with 7th chords, which gives us a new set of chords to play with!

Diminished chords are like musical tension in a bottle, waiting to be uncorked and release their unique, mysterious energy into your guitar playing

Dan Holton

All of our Theory Lab courses are hosted "on the blackboard". This means that it is theory in the truest sense of the word. We're working with our brains and our thinking mind to try to understand the concept, before using the Guitar Skills, Player Studies & Challenges to put the ideas into practice. Therefore, you can watch or listen to the course without a guitar in hand, perfect for a journey to work or chilling with a notepad handy!
