Some Abm/Cb Chord Theory and Info

  • The Abm/Cb chord contains the notes Cb, Ab and Eb.
  • It is an A flat minor chord with a C flat in the bass.
  • The root note of Abm/Cb is Ab, the bass note is Cb.
  • The Abm/Cb chord is very similar to the B6 chord (B is basically the same note as Cb), and they are often used interchangeably. The only difference between the two chords is that the B6 chord can also include the F# note, which is the 5th of B. Including the F# (same as Gb) note in Abm/Cb would make it an Abm7/Cb, as the Gb is the b7 note.
