Well I just learnt about them, and understand the theory and all of that, I'm just wondering what the abbreviated version of it would look like. I mean like how C major 7 is Cmaj7... thanks.

its the same, only the dim symbol has a slash thru it.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Fully diminished has a little raised circle, and half dim has a slash through the circle, is that right? That's what I think anyway.

C° or Cdim would be C fully diminished.

Cø or Cm7b5 are acceptable for C half-diminished.

Cm7b5 isnt necessarily a half dim, rather, a diminished seven.

does Cdim not refer to a diminished triad(C Eb Gb) and Cdim7 refer to a fully diminished chord(C Eb Gb Bbb) ? As shorthand for Cmb5?

Are you saying that Cm7b5 is a fully diminished seventh? Which is not true, of course.

Sorry, I was thinking back to when I played jazz more... the sevenths can be written as Cdim and C°, but those also refer to the triad, so I guess it's less confusing to say C°7 and Cdim7.

C diminished 7th chord = C Eb Gb Bbb (1 b3 b5 bb7) R m3 dim5 dim7 = diminished triad plus diminished 7th = Cdim7; Cᴼ

C half diminished 7th chord= C Eb Gb Bb (1 b3 b5 b7) R m3 dim5 m7 = C diminished triad plus minor 7th = Cm7b5; C∅; C-7b5

C Major 7 = C E G B (1 3 5 7) R M3 P5 M7 = C major triad plus major seventh = CMaj7 CM7 C△

C dominant 7 = C E G Bb (1 3 5 b7) R M3 P5 m7 = C major triad plus minor 7th = C7

C minor Major 7th = C Eb G B (1 b3 5 7) R m3 P5 M7 = C minor triad plus major 7th = Cm/M7; Cm/Maj7; Cm△; C-△

C minor 7th = C Eb G bB (1 b3 5 b7) R m3 P5 m7 = C minor triad plus minor 7th = Cm7; C-7

C augmented major 7th = C E G# B (1 3 #5 7) R M3 Aug5 M7= C augmented triad plus major 7 = C+Maj7; C+M7; C+△; Caug△

Those are the seven seventh chords from stacking all possible combinations of maj or min thirds. Then theres this one which has a diminished third between the #5 and the b7.

C augmented 7th = C E G# Bb (1 3 #5 b7) R M3 Aug5 m7 = C augmented triad plus minor 7th = C+7; Caug7

I'm pretty sure those are all correct. You can also call them all by their triad quality so Maj Maj would be a Maj7 and a Maj min seventh would be a dom7 etc.
