    Hi, I hope you see this comment.

    I was wondering, if with the chart you have, how one would annotate for chords that are between each roman numeral.

    There’s a song that changes from Gm to G# to Cm, and I am unsure how one would represent that with roman numerals.

      see this link – it makes more sense.


      I would analyze it in the relative major key of Bb.

      the progression is – vi – bvii – ii (that’s 6 flat7 and 2)

      The middle chord is likely Ab instead of G# (and possibly just a bass note without implied harmony)

      Hope this helps
