Earlier we explored how to use the dominant 7 sound as an extra level of tension leading from the V-chord and back to the I-chord, and you also saw that this relationship is not limited to just the V-I as any dominant 7 chord wants to lead to it's IV-chord.

So in this tutorial we'll take that concept to the next level, where we basically “borrow” dominant chords to lead to any chord within a progression. These borrowed dominant 7 chords are called “secondary dominants” and they can be used with great results to spice up your own chord progressions if you're a songwriter. And if you're not a writer, this concept can be used to understand how millions of songs are put together, which will help you learn and interpret them way more quickly than you would if you didn't understand the framework behind it all.
