    In C major, v12?
     
  12. v12

    v12

    Yes, but it's stronger with the F in the bass - which really makes it
    <strike>bII </strike>7-b9 (Flattened supertonic 7 - flattened 9, without the flattened supertonic)
    or as Dr Del-boy Carew (Cardiff) used to call it - Flat Two Slash Seven Nine
     
  13. v12

    v12

    (If my memory serves me correctly!)

    In other words, Fm6?

    Or Fdim7?
     
  16. v12

    v12

    Ha-ha. Yes. But during one lecture early on in my B.Mus at Cardiff, this Dr Derek Carew asked the assemblage what the chord was, and someone put up their hand and said,
    "A diminished chord?" to which Del-boy snapped with real anger
    "I know it's an ****** diminished chord - I did do 'O' Level music - what's its bl00dy function"

    So I've sort of shied away from using the term 'diminished' from that day to this!

    Thanks v12 - very brave of you to do that! It has its moments don't you think?

     
  19. I think the piece is in danger of losing the flow with all this discussion...
