Gb-->minor 5th

I guess I need to learn my intervals better.

The formula for a dim chord is I bIII bV, correct?

and the intervals in a Major scale are wwhwwwh. No?


C----> Tonic
C#---> major 7 of II among a few other things
Db----> minor second
D-----> major second
D#----> augmented second
Eb----> minor third
E-----> major third
F-----> perfect fourth
F#----> augmented fourth
Gb----> diminished fifth
G-----> perfect fifth
G#----> augmented fifth
Ab----> minor 6th

Etc etc etc

i.e

More or less, yeah. But, as always in music, there are multiple ways of doing the same thing.
