To play the Edim chord, place the little finger on the 4th fret of the C-string, ring finger on the 3rd fret of the E-string, and index finger on the 1st fret of the bottom A-string. Let the other string ring open.
The Edim chord contains the notes E-G-Bb.
To build an Edim chord, take the diminished triad formula (1-b3-b5) and apply it to the E major scale (E, F#, G#, A, B, C#, D#).
Identify the first, third, and fifth scale degrees in a E major scale which are E-G#-B.
Lower the third and fifth scale degrees a half step in accordance with the diminished triad formula, which results in the notes E-G-Bb for the Edim chord.
