    Hey great lesson, just one question. The F7 leads back to b flat because why? And f#7 leads back regular b why? Why not just b? We are talking dominant sevenths here correct… not major sevenths?

  2. F is the 5th of Bb.

    Seventh Chords create tension and lead back to the Root Note. So an F7 (being the 5th Chord of Bb) leads back to the Bb.

    Yes – we’re talking Dominant 7th’s :)

I dobrze w koncu, ze staje sie Pan nie ekspertem od zywnosci, ale od idei i od polityki. Smieszylo mnie wtedy jak Pan tesknil do wegorza baltyckiego, potepiajac amerykanskiego i slusznie. Alle panska krytyka, amerykanskiego kotleta schabowego doprawdy smieszyla. Sto razy smaczniejszy od wegorza europejskiego sa te niesamowite filety z chodowlanego sumika hamerykanskiego. I co Pan na to?

  7. Den største leseropplevelsen jeg har hatt i sommer, er "Idas dans". Vet ikke hva jeg skal si om boka en gang, er bare mÃ¥lløs, pÃ¥ en god mÃ¥te selvfølgelig. Ellers vil jeg anbefale "Bare en datter" og "En bedre dag i morgen – en barnesoldat forteller" som jeg leste i fjor sommer; Bør leses av alle!
