    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 :)

  6. Alvorlig og sårbart tema for mange. Derfor er det så viktig at man tar et standpunkt rundt dette, før de pårørende må gjøre det for en! Da er det så mange følelser i sving at man ikke tenker klart. I ditt tilfelle greide de tydeligvis det, og det er beundringsverdig. Flott, alvorlig og tankevekkende innlegg!
