Learn How to Play the Eb7/D#7 Guitar Chord
The E Flat 7 Guitar Chord is found by locating the 1, 3, 5 and b7 positions of the Eb Major scale: Eb F G Ab Bb C D Eb, or the notes Eb, G, Bb and Db. The “b7” symbol is referring to the flattened 7th position of the Eb Scale. When we flatten a note, we are simply going back 1/2 step from that note. In this case, because the “D” is the 7th note of the Eb Major Scale, when we flatten it by 1/2 step, we come up with a Db.
