Ebdim Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Ebdim chord, also known as a D#dim chord, contains the notes Eb-Gb-Bbb.

To build an Ebdim chord, take the diminished triad formula (1-b3-b5) 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.

Lower the third and fifth scale degrees a half step in accordance with the diminished triad formula, which results in the notes Eb-Gb-Bbb for the Ebdim chord. In this case, the "Bbb" refers to a "B double flat" which is the enharmonic equivalent of an A note.
