    in Chords & Progressions

    “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!
