## About This Class

Circle of 5ths # 6 - Understanding Secondary Dominant Chords

In popular songs or movie theme songs, we often see a lot of dominant 7 Chords.

We need to know that these dominant 7 chords belong to 2 different categories:

1.  Primary Dominant 7 Chord within the Key

2.  Secondary Dominant 7 Chords outside the Key

_______________________

To write professional music, we want to use Secondary Dominant 7 Chords also.

For each key, there are 5 Secondary Dominant 7 Chords.

Music Secret Tip in writing songs:

• We must use the one primary dominant 7 Chord - V7
• We also make use of the 5 secondary dominant 7 Chords - I7, II7, III7, VI7, VII7

_________________________

In this course, this main concentration is to show you how the 5 Secondary Dominant Chords are derived!  Many students are confused about the use of Secondary Dominant Chords.

Secondary Dominant Chords are derived with these Roman Numeral Notations:

• V7/IV
• V7/V
• V7/vi7
• V7/ii7
• V7/iii7

______________

Once we realize the above, we can simplify the Roman Numeral notation as follows:

• V7/IV = I7
• V7/V = II7
• V7/vi7 = III7
• V7/ii7 = VI7
• V7/iii7 == VII7

____________________

The following are the 5 Secondary Dominant Chords in Key of C:

• C7
• D7
• A7
• E7
