Can anyone tell me the exact fingering for the version of the G#o chord played in Lover's Heart?
I am baffled.

The small o sysmbol with the chord indicated a diminished chord. The notes for G# diminished are G# B D. You can play this simply on the top (highest sounding) 3 strings as frets 4, 3, 4. You may be able to use the G#dim7 chord instead or as Marc nearly said an E7 chord (not Eb7). The last may be fine because the notes of an E7 chord are E G# B D. so the top 3 notes are the same as a G#o.

(Btw - make sure that the o does not have a diagonal line through it - the small o is usually a superscript so you're not likely to mistake them - the o with a diagonal line through is a different type of chord)

Here ya go.

Second down on the right. The x above a string means do not play that string. The o above a string means let 'er ring.

A full diminished chord has 4 notes, each a minor third apart. So

XX3434

is the full G# diminished. A diminished chord can be named by any of its notes so this chord can also be called F dim, B dim, D dim as well as G# dim. It is the same chord when moved up or down 3 frets so

XX0101

is also G# diminished.

Stanron - that's a diminished 7th chord. G# B D F. The basic diminished chord is a triad as I outlined above. However people do often write G#o meaning the diminished chord G#o7

Marc you are right in a way. There is an inversion of E7 that is played

XX2434

bearing in mind that guitar chords are frequently incomplete

XXX434

could be called E7 or G# dim. Unless of course you were taking an exam in music theory.

My preference would be to move from G to a simple G# diminished using fingering like:


pa -- rt
3x003x 4x34xx


If you are playing with a plectrum then change the G to 32004x and play the G#dim using left hand fingers 2,1,3 (low to high) and bend 2 over slightly to damp the 5th string as you strum strings 6 to 3.

Sorry - I made a slight error in that post. It should have read a simple G# diminished 7. The chord is a G#dim7 with the D omitted; the notes from bass to treble are G# F B. (This is a common jazz 3-note fingering to use over a diminished or diminished 7 chord; it omits the diminished 5th from the chord).

Surprise surprise having heard the track I think Marcs take was right. It sounds like the guitar plays an E or E7. It's easiest to hear in the instrumental round about 2.32. It could be something like

E╓───────3───────4─┬
B╟─────3───────5───┼
G╟───4───────4─────┼
D╟─5───────6───────┼
A╟─────────────────┼
E╙─────────────────┴

. .1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

Does that sound like it to you?
