Chord #102 - G7(9/13)


Today, our G7 voicing is used in an embellished I-VI-II-V progression (or in this case, to be exact: IMaj7-V7/II-IImin7-V7). The complete chords for the example are [CMaj7 - Bb7 - A7 - Eb7 - Dmin7 - Ab7(9) - G7(9/13)]. All of the main chords (marked in bold font in this text) are approached by a sub-V Dominant chord (i.e Dominant Chord a half-step above the target chord). This is a common way to create more movement in comping.
