  Dominant 7th Madness!  

by Tim Price

left corner  

Look carefully at where the root, third, and seventh are here, plus what follows them.

The use of some nice intervalic groupings in the eighth notes makes this line flow in a modern, yet funky way. Try it on Jazz as well as various Rock and Pop styles.

As you get into it and it starts to lay under your fingers... then write some of your own using my idea.

Check it out, and groove hard.
