The Diminished Triad Struggle
When I first got into jazz, there was one type of chord always threw me off. The diminished or half-diminished chord. It frustrated me that I each time it showed up I use the same old pattern. As an improvising jazz musician, that is not something you aim for.
If I had had the diminished triad hack back then, it would have spared me a lot of stress, coming up with new patterns on the go.

I'm also giving you a couple of reasons why you should check out the diminished triad even if you don't play jazz!
