Now we are ready to release all the tension we built in the 'A' section by changing to a relaxed, smooth major key sound! We'll use D-flat major because it is the relative major key of B-flat minor.

This is the 'B' section that will be a contrast to the melancholy, bittersweet minor key section. We will use these extended harmony chords.

E-flat minor 7 (ii chord of D-flat major)
A-flat 7 (V of D-flat)
D-flat major 7 (i chord)
G-flat major 7 (IV chord)

Then, the second time through we'll play these chords. E-flat minor 7 (ii chord of D-flat major)
A-flat 7 (V of D-flat)
C7 (V of V chord going back to B-flat minor)
F7 augmented 9 flat 13 (V chord going back to B-flat minor)
