Bdim7 Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Bdim7 chord contains the notes B-D-F-Ab.

To build a Bdim7 chord, take the fully diminished seventh chord formula (1-b3-b5-bb7) and apply it to the B major scale (B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#, A#). The "bb7" indicates a double flat seventh, meaning you lower the seventh scale degree two half steps.

Identify the first, flat third, flat fifth, and double flat seventh scale degrees in the B major scale which are B-D-F-Ab.
