Quick Win #31

Reverse Resolution of a 4+4 with the Focus on the Equivalent

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • reverse resolution is very powerful; in all of the examples given in the video, we move into the same 4+4 structure, see it?
  • we've used those roots below the 4+4 that creates a dominant flavor, but you may also substitute those root tones and change the emotional flow; technically, it works with all the roots available below a 4+4


Resolution and reverse resolution can work hand in hand. Now you know how to modify any chord progression based on triads with 4+4 structures. You might want to re-watch the Quick Wins about 4+4 as a Diatonic chord structure.
