Dbaug Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Dbaug chord (also known as a C#aug chord) contains the notes Db-F-A.

To build a Dbaug chord, take the augmented triad formula (1-3-#5) and apply it to the Db major scale (Db, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, Bb, C).

Identify the first, third, and fifth scale degrees in a Db major scale which are Db-F-Ab.

Because the fifth scale degree is a "#5" (said "sharp five") raise the Ab note a half step to A making the chord augmented with the notes Db-F-A.
