16 KImprovBk1 – Dominants & Secondary Dominants

In this chapter we mainly concentrate on two “dominant” progressions: (1) progressions down a fourth; and (2) secondary (or applied) dominants.  From your music theory, you may have learned about V of V chords (an example of a secondary dominant). Secondary dominants  usually introduce chromaticism, and often propel the music forward strongly.
