Dominant 7th Voicings
We’ve checked out Major 7th, Minor 7th, now it’s time for some Dominants. These are all based on G dominant 7th. The spelling for the chord is G-B-D-F. Remember, no matter how the letters are organized, it can still be referred to as a G7 chord. Often times on a lead sheet you may a chord listed as G7/B, where they are referencing a specific voicing, but it still functions as a G7 chord.
The chords I have listed also have the bonus of doubling themselves. If you take the lowest note, and raise it to the high E string, you have another way of playing the same chord, without the fuss of moving your hand very much. Effectively you get 8 ways to play one chord for the price of 4.
