    a dim.7 chord = 1-b3-b5-6 or (bb7) // Cdim.7 = C-Eb -Gb-A or(bbB) .
    the 6th(A) and double flatted 7th(A) are enharmonic equivalents.that is 2 notes? that sound the same but are written differently.G# and Ab are enharmonic sheet music and chord books you will rarely see a diminished chord written as a will just say G#dim.

    Thanks for the lessons, they are very? effective and entertaining with the self-deprecation! Some may find it easier to form chords, with roots on the 6th string, with their thumb instead. In fact, you may want to use one fingering over another depending where the chord is on the neck, especially to avoid finger crowding. Also, using the thumb instead may make certain Chords/Notes more accessible and open up new possibilities for fills in between chords. Again, great lesson!

    thx ! if you watch me play chord solos you’ll see that i use my thumb a lot . but most people can’t , or don’t like to use their thumb .? i don’t really care what fingers people use as i’ve stated in other lessons .

    Yeah, I think it’s important to learn more than one fingering. Especially the Minor 7 with the bass on the 6th. Each fingering offers easy access to filler notes up or down the neck, which would be hard to reach? if your using the alternate fingering. So, learning both would seem to expand a players options. Again, ty for the lessons..Glad to be learning this….took me long enough..haha

    yes. when i play an Am7, i almost always use my thumb so my pinky can reach up to a? higher note easier. but i’ve learned when teaching , not to confuse people with too many different ways of fingering.this is orthodox , although you could use your finger tips for an Am7 which i dont like.

    also ,i don’t care if some body wants to use their nose to hit the 6th string bass note as long as it sounds good . all i? care about is getting a good sound anyway you can.

    Yeah..i hear ya..I love when they come back and say “So, and So said ‘That’s not the RIGHT way!’ “, I offer standard fingerings but let them know that its not the only way and if they wan’t to explore other ways, then thats fine. Main thing, in my opinion, is? to get them to understand they shouldnt pin themselves down to one style of fingering,picking, rhythm, etc. Makes them well rounded. Wish I hadn’t fallen into some of the same ruts when I started. Live and Learn.

    Fred you are a? riot with the little notations on the screen. What state are you from? I’m from the far north in New York. Would love to meet you some time and maybe jam some where. I know a fellow guitarist that looks and acts just like you but you have hair.

    Just? what I was looking for! I love the way you teach, seeing the chords drawn out on big sheets of paper while you play and explain them is perfect. Thanks!

    oh my….Dearest Mr. Freddy… you really are far too self deprecating !
    what you’re providing is simply “INVALUABLE” ! and you’re presenting it in a warm
    and exquisitely earnest way.
    you are? a beautiful man with a beautiful cat, …helping to perpetuate true ART !
    what more could this world ask for…
    and …oh yes ! indeed, THAT CIRCLE NEEDS A 3 AROUND iT !!!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!
