dominant 7ths in a minor key

Hey gents,

So I've been playing with the dominant 7ths in a minor key, and this is what I'm doing.

This may be a bit obvious, but it's a lot of fun, and helps with new ideas -You Play the form at one spot in the neck, and go up in the dom7th form, and down in the tonic minor form (up in E7, down in a minor). Then do that in EVERY position, and reverse it - down in the dom7 form, and up in the tonic minor form. Basically, if you do that in both Am, and Dm, you pretty much have mastered never getting lost in minor swing, dark eyes, minor blues, etc. (joseph joseph...)

good obvious fun.

    Sounds good, buddy... and please check my latest e-mail to the group on a related topic....

    Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."

    Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."

    Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
