The "Backdoor Progression" is a turnaround
that goes; iv7 to ♭VII7 to I .

Sounds really bluesy. :big_smile:

By a theoretical reharmonizationtechnique,
Modal Mixture, thebVII7 R, since
the music goes in a major key, borrowed from
the paralell minorscale and therefor it´s allways
a dom7 chord. :alright:

Use Modal Mixture for ex. if you want a major song
a little bit darker or vs/. :chicken:

Modal Mixture R also called Modal Interchange, MI.
