Yes I would like to drill into why a Emajor was used instead of e minor and why you state to Shulamit that either a major or minor can be used and you also mention a E7. I like to know the primary rule then the granular details on why you can break it or change it. I am guessing its the same thing with the G where you used G7 and you could just have as easily used a Gmajor? I was thought all Root, 4th and 5th where majors. So it looked funny seeing the a minor as the root as well. Now I know A is the relative minor but have not explored all of this and have not remembered it from my past. While I love playing music I love understanding music theory specifically for guitar and I want to understand all of it until there is no mysteries left. However, some books are very confusing. Are you going to cover that level of theory on the site? At the very least point toward understandable guitar music theory where we can become Zen Masters!

Hi Tomas, Jaume and Sulamit
Thanks for this very interesting lesson and the questions. I surely want to know more about this subject as well on coming thursday, february 2. I will try to be “present”. It is than already 21:00 in the evening…

Hi Tomas, Jaume and Sulamit
First of all, thanks for this very interesting lesson and the q

Hi Tomas. I have a theoretical question. I know it sounds very pleasant the transition from Dm to G7, but why is it so? Is it because D is the fifth of G, or it has nothing to do with the scale of G?

Isn’t the 5th chord in the key of A minor, E minor and not E major?

Hi Shulamit. Hmmm… or E7? I’d to add this to the next RGS live because I could explain it better with a guitar in my hand. (Spoiler alert! It could be either one).
