chords before dominant

Dominant chords (i.e. chords like A7, C7, G7...) are VERY common in western music and are used in all styles. They are often used to create a 'high-tension' feeling or just to propel the song forward.

One of the best-kept secrets of music theory is what to put just before those chords. In the last couple of centuries very ingenious and creative musicians have found many ways to 'prepare' the dominant chord, and some of these options sound simply gorgeous.

In this video I show you 6 juicy options for chords that you can put before a dominant chord. I'm not going to explain a lot of complex theory: I'm just going to give you the chords and play a few variations.

These new sounds will definitely help you get your creative juices flowing and will sparkle your inspiration.

In the video above we talk about first inversion chords. If you do not know what they are (don't worry, it's easy) then you can watch the video below, that explains you in simple language what are first inversion chords and 3 ways you can use them in your songs

If you want to know:

  • what are the ideas behind all this so you can create YOUR own variations
