  1. DISSONANT CHORDS
    dissonant chords create tension and heighten expectation in tonal music.
  2. how to use dominant seventh
    • 1. Chordal sevenths can participate in passing motions (unaccented beat (8-7,the dash connecting the two numbers means that this voice leading takes place in a single voice.) or accented beat)
    • 2. participate in neighboring motions.
    • For V7, the approach to the dissonance (its preparation)can occur in different ways. But htere is only one way to leave the dissonant seventh (its resolution): by descending step. 
    • Preparation by step from above is the prefered method to use.

    3. V7 can participate in an authentic cadence ; the addition of a seventh only enhances the dominant triad's tendency to resolve to tonic. 

    Therefore, always use the dominant triad( and not v7) at a half cadence.
  3. how to use V and v7 when they show together?
    you can add the seventh to V and create v7 chord, but you cannot go from v7 to V.
  4. how to use I and V7 ?
    • connect the upper voices of V7 to the preceding chord by step.resolve the chord's tendency tones: the chordal seventh(4) always descends in any voice( there are no other opitions)
    • leading tone 7 always ascends when it occurs in the soprano.
    • Incomplete V7 you can only omit 5th
    • generally, acomplete v7 resolves to an incomplete tonic, and an incomplete v7 resolves to a complete tonic.)

    ps. when the leading tone is in an inner voice ,it can move down to 5 instead of resolving to 1
  5. what is unequal fifths?
    • when connecting I and v7, THE PERFECT FIFTH IN i MOVES TO THE DIMINISHED FIFTH IN v7
    • these fifths are not parallel perfect fifths, but rather unequal fifths. and they are perimissible as long as the diminished fifith resolves to a third.

    d5 cannot move to P5
