In this lesson we'll play a complete octave of dominant 7th chord voicings. Notice that we need to use the minor 6th scale degree if we consider this is the VI chord, or V of ii in the key of C major.

We'll also play a complete octave with the bass line and upper chord tones of dominant 7th chord voicings from the previous lesson. Our walking bass line moves up and down the A major scale altered to use the minor 6th and minor 7th. This makes it possible to use as an altered VI chord in C major and play a moving bass line along with higher register voices of chord inversions to suggest a melody.

In the next lesson we'll practice playing both dominant 7th chords along with a backing track!
