7th DISSONANCES AND GERSHWIN!
Today’s video is on an area that even, dare I say, many experienced musicians often mix up and that is 7th chords. This is the one area of piano harmony that really trips people up, many students despite playing piano their entire life, still have ABSOLUTELY no idea about the different functions of these chords.
By mastering and knowing this video I’m about to share with you, you are going to be lightyears ahead! Get your notebook out, this is not just any YouTube tutorial. This is the stuff of all of the music we enjoy and listen to in all genres.
Major 7th, Minor 7th, Dominant 7th, what’s the difference?
The example I use at the end of this video is Gershwin’s Summertime, because it’s such a lovely example of these beautiful chords.
This video is worth going back to on multiple occasions for reference, so please MARK this page.
