This lesson extends your knowledge of chords to cover the addition of a seventh to the chord. The dominant chord is one of the strongest ways to make a piece come to an end. The dominant chord (also known as the V chord (five chord)) is the chord that most frequently precedes the final chord of a piece of music. As the dominant chord is so common, it is essential that you know it well. This lesson will give you some patterns that will help you practise this common chord.
