Diminished chords can be tricky to navigate sometimes when comping.

These voicings are sure to help you find the sound you need, they come from a 4-part diminished 7th chord with the second note from the top placed an octave below, known as “Drop 2.”

Transpose them into 3 keys and you’ll have all 12!
