The dominant seventh chord: here is everything to know (part 2)


Inversions of dominant seventh chord

What are the possibilities with the new seventh chords which we have built on a major and minor scale?
Today we will try to answer this question.

For example by using inversions of seventh chords we will introduce some new tools.
Remember the case of triads: the possibility to change the note in the bass offered very important harmonic resources.

In the lesson today we will try to understand how the inversions work in the case of dominant seventh chord and which are the best ways to resolve them.

We will also see how to apply non-harmonic tones which we studied during the composition course.

As you can see we are advancing in the study of harmony and new horizons are opening up before us.

Let’s start exploring!
