    Why don’t you barre the Gm7b5? It’s a much easier fingering.

      Pretty much because a lot of people will find barring too hard. Although I do know what you mean, the fingering is a nightmare as it stands. I would always use the other voicing with the high note on the G string or barre and miss the b7, giving the basic diminished triad.

    Man. Those tritones sound evil. Especially when you were really demonstrating them. Sounds like something Cannibal Corpse or Hate eternal would do. Very Death Metal like.
