    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 :)
