[Harp-L] Diminished tuning

But the min7 is 1 b3 5 b7 and the dimi is 1 b3 b5 bb7--
So half the harp is tuned dimi, the first two holes, but then the other half is funky!

Also that there are 4 enharmonics found on each. One has min7 chords a whole step apart and one dim7 chords a whole step apart. Some interesting parallels.
