D#add9 Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Ebadd9 chord, also known as a D#add9, but sometimes referred to as an Ebsus2 or D#sus2 chord, contains the notes Eb-G-Bb-F.

To build an Ebadd9 chord, take the major triad formula (1-3-5) and add in the theoretical ninth scale degree (1-3-5-9) using the Eb major scale, which has the notes Eb, F, Gb, Ab, Bb, C, D.

Notice how a major scale has just seven notes. How do we get the ninth scale degree? Repeat the scale and count nine notes:

Eb, F, Gb, Ab, Bb, C, D, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, Bb, C, D

Note: The ninth scale degree is underlined.

Identify the first, third, fifth, and ninth scale degrees in the Eb major scale which are Eb-G-Bb-F.
