In this lesson we are going to talk about dominant 7 chords and inversions, especially the very useful drop 3 chords.
The idea is quite simple, we've got a classic Blues progression in G and we are going to use the chords and inversions to create a nice comping over this little Blues. Just 3 chords and some voicings but lot of possibilities!
What are drop 3 chords?
We start from the close position voicing (R 3 5 7), take the 3rd note from the top and drop it down an octave.
If we take the G7 chord : G B D F becomes B G D F.
This gives us a root position and 3 inversions :
R 7 3 5
3 R 5 7
5 3 7 R
7 5 R 3
In videos #1 #2 & #3 I show you the voicings for G7, C7 & D7 chords. The main video starts from #4.
