Diminished to Dominant
There are only three diminished chords.
Each has 4 notes of the 12
If you lower any single note of a diminished chord, you get a
dominant seventh chord.
(This is often viewed the other way around,
by sharpening the root of a seventh chord to get a diminished, but
we are looking at diminished chords as a more fundamental element.
There are far fewer diminished chords
and so we work from the small core of a single chromatic scale
and only three diminished scales, out to the
many varied and more numerous chords.
