D#m Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Eb minor chord, also known as a D#m, contains the notes Eb-Gb-Bb.

To build an Ebm chord, take the minor triad formula (1-b3-5) and apply it to the Eb major scale (Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D).

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

Because the chord Ebm is a minor chord, lower the third scale degree a half step in accordance with the minor triad formula, which results in the notes Eb-Gb-Bb for the Eb minor chord.
