How Can You Use the 7th Chord in Jazz?

In African rhythm how can you arrange your chords using 7th?


ANSWER

Hi, Aderemi--

The RHYTHM actually does not really affect the use of the 7th chords at all. What does determine the use of 7th chords is the function of the particular chord in the progression.

Please visit Chord Formulas.

Scroll down to the section on Seventh Chords.


Then go to Chord Progressions.

This page will teach you WHEN to use each type of seventh chord.

Then if you have further questions, please write again.

Best Wishes,
Lynne
