    “The Dominant 9th Chord

    This chord can be played in “2-5-1” gospel chord progressions (other styles as well). Try it out:

    “Eb9 Chord” (pronounced “E flat dominant ninth chord)

    In the key of “Db major”:

    Bass = Eb

    Right hand = G + Bb + Db + F

    Play this chord as a “lead-in” to an Ab chord. 90 percent of the time, it can be used in a “2-5-1” chord progression (that is, Eb — Ab — Db).

    That’s it for now! I’ll see you tomorrow!

    Hi, I'm Jermaine Griggs, founder of this site. We teach people how to express themselves through the language of music. Just as you talk and listen freely, music can be enjoyed and played in the same way... if you know the rules of the "language!" I started this site at 17 years old in August 2000 and more than a decade later, we've helped literally millions of musicians along the way. Enjoy!
