October 13, 2010 | October Mandolin Sessions: Declaring Dominants
Once in a while, we like to review elementary theory concepts, and our 2010 October/November Mandolin Sessions article does just that. It doesn't get more basic than 'I V7 I', and we examine the implications of the tonic/dominant relationship in enhancing static passages, transitioning to other keys, secondary dominants, and tritone substitutions.
If you are just starting to explore music theory, this one's for you. If you're a little more advanced, you'll still pick up a few things you might have missed as you apply this concept to the mandolin fretboard.
Dig in! What you can do with a V7 chord: Declaring Dominants
Do us a solid; if you like the article give us some public warm fuzzies in the response form at the bottom of the page.
