Subject: RE: help with chords please
It’s shorthand for diminished seventh chords, typically used as passing chords whilst moving from one major to another, eg. C to D.

C#dim7 would contain the notes of C#, E, G and B
D#dim7 - D#, F#, A and C#
Bdim7 = B, D#, G# and C.

On the top four strings of guitar, you could fret C#dim7 as 2423 (low to high), with D# two frets up and B one fret lower. The same fingering could be used on ukelele but at other frets depending on the pitch tuning of the instrument.
