Ddim7 Ukulele Chord Explanation
The Ddim7 chord contains the notes D-F-Ab-B.
To build a Ddim7 chord, take the fully diminished seventh chord formula (1-b3-b5-bb7) and apply it to the D major scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#). 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 D major scale which are D-F-Ab-B.
