I'm trying to play, "My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison. The tab I have has an F#dim and a G#dim. How do you play a diminished chord?

If there are theorists that would like to chime in and explain the hows/whys/wherefores of a diminished chord, that would be great too.

root, flat 3rd, flat 5th, and (usually) double-flat 7th

That site is great, I tend to use their jam thingy quite a lot for scale practise, shame the speed only goes up to 200...

Excellent site, thanks. That answered my question and more.
