Hello

This one is in Beethovens Piano concerto no 3. Cm-Ab-Db-G, Would that be i-VI-?-V, The third chord I am guessing appears to be a flattened supertonic, if so how do I write it,if not, ohdearme. Please help.

The second is a pop song Dusty Springfield did it "Little by Little"
I think Cm-Bb-Eb-Bb-Cm, how would you write that please?

Best to all

The second progression looks either like II-I-IV-I or VI-V-I-V. Greetings.

i - VI - bII - V

i - bVII - bIII - bVII - i

Another style of nation exists, where bVII = VII and bIII = III


bVII means the root is on the flat 7th (subtonic) scale degree, but strictly speaking, the b sign isn't necessary because in the natural minor scale the 7th note is already flatter than the major. The fact that it's VII and not vii (leading note) tells you all you need to know

bIII means the the root is one semitone lower than the iii of the major key. But if we take the minor scale as the reference, then its III - meaning a major chord on the 3rd minor scale degree. Both styles are in use.
