Db Major

STEP BY STEP

How to play a Db Major chord on the guitar

  1. Make a barre with your first finger on the fourth fret.
  2. Put your second finger on the sixth fret of the fourth string.
  3. Put your third finger on the sixth fret of the third string.
  4. Put your fourth finger on the sixth fret of the second string.
  5. Strum only the highest five strings.

THEORY

Db Major is a major triad, built up of the root, the major third, and the perfect fifth:

Here is how those notes are actually distributed across your fretboard

Here’s how you might play the same chord on the piano:

HOW IT’S USED

The most common progression you’ll likely see with Db Major is going from Db, to Gb, to Ab, or I, IV, V.

Adding in the minor six chord (Bbm), you have the classic `I-V-iv-IV` pattern:

Chords In The Key Of D Flat Major

The key of D flat major makes use of the same chords and scale notes as the key of C sharp major, except that the notes and chords have different names. Db and C# are enharmonic equivalents.

What are the chords in the key of Db major?

First of all let’s take a look at the D flat major scale. The notes in this scale are Db Eb F Gb Ab Bb C Db. Like every other major key the chords in this key follows the pattern major minor minor major major minor diminished.

The triads in the key of D flat major are Dbmaj, Ebmin, Fmin, Gbmaj, Abmaj, Bbmin and Cdim. The four note chords with sevenths are Dbmaj7, Ebmin7 Fmin7, Gbmaj7, Ab7, Bbmin7 and Cm7b5.

To learn more about chords by key (what chords are in what key and why), check out my book, Master Piano Chords By Key And Give Yourself A Big Advantage When Playing, Learning Or Writing Songs.

Let’s list these chords by roman numerals. Each note in the scale is represented by a different roman numeral. Notice that some are capitalized while others are not.

  • I – Db major, Db major seventh (bDmaj, Dbmaj7)
  • ii – Eb minor, Eb minor seventh (Ebm, Ebm7)
  • iii – F minor, F minor seventh (Fm, Fm7)
  • IV – Gb major, Gb major seventh (Gb, Gbmaj 7)
  • V – Ab major, Ab dominant seventh (Ab, Ab7)
  • vi – Bb minor, Bb minor seventh (Bbm, Bbm7)
  • vii° – C diminished, C minor seventh flat five (C°, Cm7b5)

1. Piano key note names

This step shows the white and black note names on a piano keyboard so that the note names are familiar for later steps, and to show that the note names start repeating themselves after 12 notes.

The white keys are named using the alphabetic letters A, B, C, D, E, F, and G, which is a pattern that repeats up the piano keyboard.

Every white or black key could have a flat(b) or sharp(#) accidental name, depending on how that note is used. In a later step, if sharp or flat notes are used, the exact accidental names will be chosen.

Sharp and flat note names

The audio files below play every note shown on the piano above, so middle C (marked with an orange line at the bottom) is the 2nd note heard.

2. D-flat major scale notes

This step shows the scale note names that will be used to construct all triad chords that harmonize with those scale notes.

The piano keyboard below contains the notes of the Db major scale.

Starting from the 1st scale note, each lesson step below will take each note in turn and construct a triad chord using that note as the root / starting note of that chord.

The triad chord will be built using only the notes of the scale we are interested in.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

Triad chords are built using the 1st, 3rdand 5th notes of the scale, so the first triad below will constructed a chord using notes Db, F and Ab.

The second triad below will repeat this, but this time starting on the 2nd note, so its notes will be Eb, Gb and Bb - ie. the 1st, 3rd and 5th positions relative to that 2nd root note.

This pattern is repeated for all 7 notes in the scale, resulting in 7 triad chords.

D-flat major scale

Identifying the chord quality

Although the above method identifies each triads notes from the scale used - it does not identify the complete chord name including its quality.

Should each triad that we build be called major, minor, augmented, or diminished ? Every triad chord must have one of these quality names.

To decide the name the chord quality, each step below will use note intervals to calculate how many half-tones / semitones / piano keys between the root and the 3rd (and 5th).

Taken together, the combination of the 3rd and 5th note intervals will define the complete triad quality name.

The steps below will show how this works for each triad in turn, but in practice it might just be easier to memorize the triad quality table in the Scale chord summary for each scale type.

3. 1st triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 1st scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 1st note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes Db, F, and Ab.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between Db and F is 4 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore major, also called M3 for short. More details of this interval are at Db-maj-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between Db and Ab is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at Db-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having major(M3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is major.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, Db, onto this quality, giving us the Db major chord.

D-flat major triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol I could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is Db major chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord Ia.

Instead, I could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is Db major chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord Ib.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is Db major chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord Ic.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols I:

So in this key, I6 refers to the Db major chord in 1st inversion, and I64 refers to the Db major chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, Db, will be moved to the final column of the table.

4. 2nd triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 2nd scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 2nd note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes Eb, Gb, and Bb.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between Eb and Gb is 3 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. More details of this interval are at Eb-min-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between Eb and Bb is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at Eb-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having minor(m3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is minor.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, Eb, onto this quality, giving us the Eb minor chord.

E-flat minor triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol ii could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is Eb minor chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord iia.

Instead, ii could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is Eb minor chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord iib.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is Eb minor chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord iic.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols ii:

So in this key, ii6 refers to the Eb minor chord in 1st inversion, and ii64 refers to the Eb minor chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, Eb, will be moved to the final column of the table.

5. 3rd triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 3rd scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 3rd note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes F, Ab, and C.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between F and Ab is 3 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. More details of this interval are at F-min-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between F and C is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at F-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having minor(m3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is minor.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, F, onto this quality, giving us the F minor chord.

F minor triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol iii could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is F minor chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord iiia.

Instead, iii could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is F minor chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord iiib.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is F minor chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord iiic.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols iii:

So in this key, iii6 refers to the F minor chord in 1st inversion, and iii64 refers to the F minor chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, F, will be moved to the final column of the table.

6. 4th triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 4th scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 4th note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes Gb, Bb, and Db.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between Gb and Bb is 4 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore major, also called M3 for short. More details of this interval are at Gb-maj-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between Gb and Db is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at Gb-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having major(M3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is major.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, Gb, onto this quality, giving us the Gb major chord.

G-flat major triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol IV could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is Gb major chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord IVa.

Instead, IV could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is Gb major chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord IVb.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is Gb major chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord IVc.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols IV:

So in this key, IV6 refers to the Gb major chord in 1st inversion, and IV64 refers to the Gb major chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, Gb, will be moved to the final column of the table.

7. 5th triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 5th scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 5th note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes Ab, C, and Eb.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between Ab and C is 4 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore major, also called M3 for short. More details of this interval are at Ab-maj-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between Ab and Eb is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at Ab-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having major(M3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is major.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, Ab, onto this quality, giving us the Ab major chord.

A-flat major triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol V could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is Ab major chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord Va.

Instead, V could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is Ab major chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord Vb.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is Ab major chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord Vc.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols V:

So in this key, V6 refers to the Ab major chord in 1st inversion, and V64 refers to the Ab major chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, Ab, will be moved to the final column of the table.

8. 6th triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 6th scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 6th note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes Bb, Db, and F.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between Bb and Db is 3 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. More details of this interval are at Bb-min-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between Bb and F is 7 half-tones, and the note interval name is perfect (P5). More details of this interval are at Bb-perf-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having minor(m3) and perfect(P5) note intervals is minor.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, Bb, onto this quality, giving us the Bb minor chord.

B-flat minor triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol vi could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is Bb minor chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord via.

Instead, vi could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is Bb minor chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord vib.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is Bb minor chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord vic.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols vi:

So in this key, vi6 refers to the Bb minor chord in 1st inversion, and vi64 refers to the Bb minor chord in 2nd inversion.

The next scale chord

The next step will need to calculate the triad chord whose root / starting note is next scale note.

To do this, the first column we used in this step, Bb, will be moved to the final column of the table.

9. 7th triad chord in D-flat major scale

This step shows how to identify the notes and the name of a triad chord whose root note is the 7th scale degree of the Db major scale.

Identifying the 3 notes in the chord

The table below shows the Db major scale, ordered to show the 7th note as the first column in the table.

To identify the triad chord note names, use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th columns / scale degrees, which are notes C, Eb, and Gb.

Identifying the chord quality

To identify the triad chord quality that has these notes, begin by counting the number of half-tones / semitones between the root and each of the notes.

For the 3rd Interval (note 2 on the diagram) the distance between C and Eb is 3 half-tones.

Now look at the complete Note interval table, and identify the note interval that has a distance of 3 half-tones (first column), and with an interval no. of 3 (last column).

The note interval name for the 3rd note / scale degree is therefore minor, also called m3 for short. More details of this interval are at C-min-3rd.

Repeating this for the 5th note / scale degree, the distance between C and Gb is 6 half-tones, and the note interval name is diminished (d5). More details of this interval are at C-dim-5th.

Finally, we have the name of the two note intervals of this triad, and can now lookup the name of the triad chord quality having these intervals.

Looking at the Triad chord table, the name of the triad chord quality having minor(m3) and diminished(d5) note intervals is diminished.

And so the complete triad chord name prefixes the root note, C, onto this quality, giving us the C diminished chord.

C diminished triad chord

Scale chord names using a,b and c notation

The chord symbol viio could be followed by the letter a to indicate that it is C diminished chord in root position (ie not inverted) - D-flat major scale chord viioa.

Instead, viio could be followed by the letter b to indicate that it is C diminished chord in 1st inversion - D-flat major scale chord viiob.

Finally, letter c could be used to indicate that it is C diminished chord in 2nd inversion - D-flat major scale chord viioc.

Scale chord names using figured bass notation

In place of the b or c symbols above, figured bass symbols could be used to indicate inversions after the chord number symbols viio:

So in this key, viio6 refers to the C diminished chord in 1st inversion, and viio64 refers to the C diminished chord in 2nd inversion.

This completes the set of all triad chords that harmonize with the Db major scale.

Db Chord (also C# or C sharp)

Chords in the Key of D♭ Major (D-flat)

Notice there is only one 13th chord in a key, with seven different names depending on the root of the chord when played. Also notice that when you add a 6th note to a triad, the new chord has the same notes as another triad with an added 7th, D♭add6 has the same notes as B♭m7. Don't fear the names of the chords, but look at the intervals in blue, see the patterns to names, like a Major 7th chord, as in a D♭M7 (1-3-5-7), or a 7th chord (or dominant 7th chord), as in a A♭7 (1-3-5-♭7), or a minor 7th chord, as in a E♭m7 (1-♭3-5-♭7), or a half-diminished 7th chord, as in a C∅7 (1-♭3-♭5-♭7). When playing in a Major Key, notes outside of the key may be added, creating chords not shown above. When a note outside of the Key is added to a chord, the note is considered an accidental note and would need to be marked in the name of the chord.

There is usually more than one place on a guitar where a chord can be played. To figure out places to play a chord, write the notes of the chord down in a text file (or on a sheet of paper) and then visit the Major Key position charts on guitar. Find the notes on the chart and think of how to play all three notes. You do not have to play all six strings to play a chord. The positions are shown in the key of C Major. Just remember that a sharp (♯) is one fret up from a note, a flat (♭) is one fret down. On the sixth string of a guitar, the F is on the first fret. F♯ is on the second fret. G is on the third fret. G♭ is on the second fret. F♯ and G♭ are the same note on a guitar.


about Major Keys

There are fifteen Major Keys in Western music. The Key of C Major, which has no sharps or flats. The Key of G Major, which has one sharp, F♯. The Key of D Major, which has two sharps, F♯, and C♯. The Key of A Major, which has three sharps, F♯, C♯, and G♯. The Key of E Major, which has four sharps, F♯, C♯, G♯, and D♯. The Key of B Major, which has five sharps, F♯, C♯, G♯, D♯, and A♯. The Key of F♯ Major, which has six sharps, F♯, C♯, G♯, D♯, A♯, and E♯. The Key of C♯ Major, which has seven sharps, F♯, C♯, G♯, D♯, A♯, E♯, and B♯. The Key of F Major, which has one flat, B♭. The Key of B♭ Major, which has two flats, B♭, and E♭. The Key of E♭ Major, which has three flats, B♭, E♭, and A♭. The Key of A♭ Major, which has four flats, B♭, E♭, A♭, and D♭. The Key of D♭ Major, which has five flats, B♭, E♭, A♭, D♭, and G♭. The Key of G♭ Major, which has six flats, B♭, E♭, A♭, D♭, G♭, and C♭. The Key of C♭ Major, which has seven flats, B♭, E♭, A♭, D♭, G♭, C♭, and F♭.

Three of the keys share notes with three other keys, they are called enharmonic. They may look the same on a guitar or piano, but look very different in sheet music. C♭ Major and B Major are enharmonic, C♯ Major and D♭ Major are enharmonic, and F♯ Major and G♭ Major are enharmonic, sharing notes on a guitar. C Major is the best key to study the patterns of chords, as there are no extra sharps and flats to contend with, counting out notes in the scale is easier. It is nice to have all fifteen keys for reference, but in practical use a guitarist may only play a few of these keys. Guitar is easier to play when at least some of the open strings are in the key.
