I know that we all hate changes and these may not be too clear, but read them twice and you will understand.  All I have put for you is the normal E flat and D flat chords spelled out.  As you deal with black Gospel piano players or black pianists, they will tell you that they play by number. They know for example after the third chord the 7th chord may follow or after the fifth chord the second or the first chord may follow.  Do not be scared it is the same thing as the spelled out chords they often use dominant chords of seventh or ninth chord, etc.  Now that you know all about major, minor,  minor, major, major and diminish.  Please consider using the ones below and I have placed them by number instead for you. Try them

Below are some sexy Eb  e flat chords that I use all the time.  They are the same as the ones above, but they give a fuller sound.  Now that you know all about major, minor,  minor, major, major and diminish.  Please consider using the ones below and I have placed them by number instead.  You will sound more professional using the inverted ones below.  These Eb  e flat chords are really awesome and they are the same as the ones above, but sound better, When you have (Eb) e flat in the bass(left Hand)  use GBbEb (with the right hand) instead of  EbGBb, and so on.  If you do not understand email me

These D flat chords are really awesome.  They are the ones I use mainly.  And they are the same as the ones above, but sound better.  When you already have (Db) D flat in the bass(left Hand),  use F AbDb in the right hand, instead of  DbFAb, and so on. If you do not understand email me
