I am a little confused about exactly what notes make up a dominant 7 chord. I’ve read elsewhere that a dominant 7 chord consists of a major triad and a minor 7th of a given scale. Is both right? Can your recommend any books on chord construction?
Yes thats right, im just not playing the fifth in this example (a 4 note chord is too muddy sounding on a 4 string bass)
Books? Naa, just go to, its not that complicated and he covers the subject well
