Ebsus Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Ebsus chord (also known as the D#sus chord) contains the notes Eb-Ab-Bb.

In this case, the "sus" in the chord name, which means suspended is referring to a "sus4" note.

To build an Ebsus chord, take the suspended fourth chord formula (1-4-5) and apply it to the Eb major scale (Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D).

Identify the first, fourth, and fifth scale degrees in the Eb major scale which are Eb-Ab-Bb, which gives you an Ebsus chord.
