Example 1 illustrates the Dominant 7th (V7) (G7) chord resolution to the Tonic chord (I) (C) in the key of C major.
You may notice that the D♭7 chord has an augmented 6th (B), which is enharmonic to the chord's 7th (C♭). This is typical of so-called " Substitute Dominant 7th, 9th, 11th and 13th chords, and I will explain why in a future posting. In the next installment, I will give you the theory behind this device, You will need to know the theory in order to apply it more successfully, and more often. You will also need to be shown how it can be modified, augmented and expanded in such a way that will allow you to discover many other important points of applied theory on your own. By fully understanding the theory, you will also be able to apply your knowledge to songs and melodies in any and all keys and modes. That is a worthy goal, and one that is far better than to have you simply playing my arrangements. I am not seeking to create clones of myself; I would like to help others find their own style and voice.
