E Flat Major Diatonic Chords
These are the seven major scale diatonic chords that come from the E Flat major scale.
Each major scale diatonic chord is labelled with a roman numeral number:
All major scales follow the same chord quality pattern:
I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi, viiº
We use uppercase roman numeral numbers to represent major chords, lowercase to represent minor chords, uppercase with a small plus sign to represent augmented chords, and lowercase with a small circle to represent diminished chords. (1, 4 and 5 chords in major scales will always be major chords. 2, 3 and 6 chords will always be minor chords. 7 chord in major scale will always be diminished chord.)
The seven diatonic chords in the E flat major key are:
I. E♭ – G – B♭ (E Flat major chord)
ii. F – A♭ – C (F minor chord)
iii. G – B♭ – D (G minor chord)
IV. A♭ – C – E♭ (A Flat major chord)
V. B♭ – D – F (B Flat major chord)
vi. C – E♭ – G (C minor chord)
viiº. D – F – A♭ (D diminished chord)
These are the chords that harmonize the E flat major scale.
