What Makes Diminished Chords Awesome?

You’ve probably heard about diminished chords before, they’re almost exactly like Minor chords but with a lowered 5th, or in fancy music theory terms a “flat 5”.

When you first stumble up on these chords they sound just like your typical old fashioned horror movie, but don’t let it fool you! Diminished chords have a lot more uses than just that, and you’ll find them in pretty much any developed music genre.

This video shows how to use diminished chords to modulate to new keys or, in more general terms, to change the direction of your music. In order to do so we need to make sure we all understand a few core concepts:

0:07 Introduction
0:39 Example

3:34 The V7 Chord (Dominant Seventh Chords)
