### Ao7/Crazy Fingers

How do you finger the Ao7 in Crazy Fingers?

And while I'm at it... what's one that stands out in your mind? (Or list!)

I play it here

e---
b--7-
g--5-
d--7-
a--6-
E---

It's the same as the one that's in the book which is this

e-2--
b-1--
g-2--
d-1--
a---
E---

I play the full run from the Ab to the G like this

--Ab-Ao7-Ebmaj7-Dmaj7-Dbmaj7-Db7-Dbmaj7-Gsus4-G

e--4-------6------5-----4-----4----4------3---3-
b--4--7----8------7-----6-----6----6------3---3-
g--5--5----7------6-----5-----4----5------5---4-
d--6--7----8------7-----6-----6----6------5---5-
a--6--6----6------5-----4-----4----4----
E--4-------------------------------------(3)-(3)-

Those 2 positions for the dim 7th can kinda daisy chain up the neck voicing different inversions of the same notes. Definitely some theory goin on with that.

e-2---5---8----11----14---
b-1-4-4-7-7-10-10-13-13---
g-2-2-5-5-8--8-11-11-14---
d-1-4-4-7-7-10-10-13-13---
a---3---6----9----12------

Something having to do with perfect or equal intervals in the diminished scale I believe.

Maybe someone with more theory knowledge than me can elaborate.

Of course a hedgehog has more theory knowledge than me,

Wow man, cheers!

That makes it SO much easier for me... I'm a pretty poor guitar player (been playing a long time...just, really badly! I'm literally just cutting my teeth on bar chords, after...8-ish... years of playing. (I learned 3 chords from a friend, and found rukind.com and ksherlocks dylan site...the rest is history!)

so not having to bounce up and down the neck a whole lot is really good for me.

Much appreciated brother!

### Re: Ao7/Crazy Fingers

BillBill and the anthology seem to have the correct notes for the chord in question: play A, C, Eb, and Gb. The issue for me is that the chord isn't named correctly. That's a minor third, for one thing. Those notes do not make A dim 7. I don't know what to call it, but I'm happy with the sound.

Sure is A dim 7. It's all stacked minor thirds.

Also the same as C, Eb, and Gb dim 7.

Still sounds like Jerry and I am sure he is not using an Twin, Mac or JBL's in a Hard Trucker cab in his dressing room.

He is playing through a small practice amp, and yes he does still sound like Jerry, but not like Jerry through his stage rig. I am so tired of that argument!
All's well that sounds well.
