This is the kind of pointless trivial stuff that sometimes appeals to me.

And who knows, maybe some of you other OCD cases around the world are similarly inclined?

So everybody grab a pint and let's pretend that this is an online pub...

I will be your quizmaster, and the question is as follows...

G dim XX2323 and Bm7b5 X2323X and C7b5 2323XX all share the same fingering...

What other four note fingerings can you find that can be used on the upper four strings, the middle four, and the lower four?

Have fun!

    I think I'd need a strong cup of coffee to figure this one out!

    OK, this was an interesting study. I knew a few in two of the fingerings, but not in all three. I came up with a family of them starting with the a triad that works in the 3 fingerings.

    Base Triad:

    XX323X F6 (R 3 6)

    X323XX C7 (R 3 b7)

    323XXX G7 (R 3 b7)

    Then added the 4th note:

    Option 1:

    XX3234 F6#9 (R 3 6 #9)

    X3234X C7#9 (R 3 b7 #9)

    3234XX G7 (R 3 b7 3)

    Option 2:

    XX3233 F69 (R 3 6 9)

    X3233X C9 (R 3 b7 9)

    3233XX G7#9 (R 3 b7 #9)

    Option 3:

    XX3232 F6b9 (R 3 6 b9)

    X3232X C7b9 (R 3 b7 b9)

    3232XX G9 (R 3 b7 9)

    Option 4:

    XX3231 F6 (R 3 6 R)

    X3231X C7 (R 3 b7 R)

    3231XX G7b9 (R 3 b7 b9)

    I think I can apply some of these and the others suggested in my playing. Thanks for the exercise.

    Great, Bill.

    I don’t know about your fingers but mine are at an age where they really appreciate javing the same finger shapes work on different strings… a lot easier than learning new chords…
