Fdim Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Fdim chord contains the notes F-Ab-Cb.

To build an Fdim chord, take the diminished triad formula (1-b3-b5) and apply it to the F major scale (F, G, A, Bb, C, D, E).

Identify the first, third, and fifth scale degrees in an F major scale which are F-A-C.

Lower the third and fifth scale degrees a half step in accordance with the diminished triad formula, which results in the notes F-A-Cb for the Fdim chord. In this case, the "Cb" is the enharmonic equivalent of the note B.
