OK, and the triad is, for an instance, CD#F#, which's also a trans-
position of the dim7s on D# and F#, as you can see by sliding it
up 3 frets at a time on a guitar; there's a 2^(3/12) in there, also.
well, I guess that it's just a Dim, not a dim7; it's confusing, as
the C7 chord is more naturally harmonic than the Cmaj7 one, although
it includes a black key; G7 is all white keys, though.
