In this lesson I'll show you how you can use the bluesy tension of the dominant 7 chords to emphasize the natural tension and movement between the three chords.

Remember how, when you have your I-chord established (play C) and then play the V-chord, it really wants to resolve back to I. Now if you make the V-chord a dominant 7 chord, that tension and direction is even stronger.

Let's try this out with a simple backing track. This is simple stuff, so make sure to put all your attention on the function of each of the chord changes. Here it goes!
