Neil,

I see I've reached that age at which I can no longer remember what I've said here before. I can only hope I'm at least being consistent.

I too will continue to annotate charts as you suggest, using dim for the triad and the degree sign for dim7. I have no university education in music so what I do may not meet the expectations of academia but then most of my playing techniques wouldn't pass muster in those hallowed halls either. I believe our usage represents the general case and since language is determined by usage and given that music is a language... And analyzing Schubert sounds like a lot of work to me, though I love to hear him played.

I see I've reached that age at which I can no longer remember what I've said here before. I can only hope I'm at least being consistent.
