Guitar Techniques - - Play: Theory -

Sec­ondary dom­i­nant chords are chords that act as dom­i­nants to ma­jor and mi­nor chords that are not the root. To demon­strate this we’ll play the di­a­tonic chord fam­ily of C ma­jor with a sec­ondary dom­i­nant chord pre­ced­ing each chord. So we’ll play a C7 be­fore the F chord be­cause C7 is the dom­i­nant chord in F ma­jor. Sec­ondary dom­i­nant chords are writ­ten as (for ex­am­ple) V/IV, mean­ing that it is the dom­i­nant of chord IV.
