Chord of the Month


D flat9 (flat5)

This must be the most famous flattened fifth to have graced the charts in living memory... Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love For You." The chord comes in just before the title vocal line. And the flattened fifth (G) quickly resolves to an Aflat before too much damage is done. A nice tune for big chords all round, in fact. Listen out for those Major 7ths and Minor 9ths.
