If I'm in the key of E minor and I play a D# major chord, what is the functionality of the D# major? If you guys need the whole progression just say so.

It goes to the V. So, Mac would be right in saying its a sub-dominant, I suppose.

I think it's part of a dominant figure - hard to reconcile the leading tone with a subdominant function.

You're right.

What do you mean "part of a dominant figure"

Also, here is the tab. The D# major is at the first half of bar 4.

It's kinda dominant, kinda predominant. It could go right back to the Em, but it also goes to to B. I'm calling part of a dominant phrase because it contains a D# and a G (F##), both of which are typical on dominants in Em.

an augmented cycle would work... Gmaj Bmaj Ebmaj..you can of course alter the quality to dominate...D# = Eb...a much easier key to work with...
