Edim7

I don't come across Dim chords often, and normally when I do, as a bassplayer, its really just my job to hold down the root of such a chord, since they normally pass quickly, used as a quick lead to something else


But I'm playing ship of Fools, and its holding Eo7 for two bars, at a slow tempo, so I can't really get away with just holding the E down.

so my questin is, the 7 of a Eo7 chord, would that be a D or a Db? I couldn't remember if that specific notation was for the half diminished, which would be built as E G Bb D (I think?!)

or if it was whole diminished, with the Db?

Since your question has already been answered...

Remember that the key of E has 4 sharps. F# C# G# D#
no flats. Even though they are same and maybe I am being anal, but when I am in a key that has sharps I like to think of them that way. ( and the same for the flat keys)
