Alright, jazz guys know what I'm talking about. Minor 7 to dominate 7 then major 7. I'm just so used to playing jazz charts w/ 2 5 1's in a bossa or swing feel. I think putting them into a rock/ metal song tastefully could be pretty cool. possibly

I've heard 2,5,1 progressions more in blues songs but never in a rock or metal song. It could sound good if you do it right.

Watch out, he's gonna play a DOMINATE 7!

Good luck trying to play it in a metal context. 7th chords are going to sound insanely discordant with distortion. You could try it by doing an arpeggiated riff though.

A) I'm not a kid.

B) I am fully aware of what he's talking about.

C) This thread has no point; which is what the "Sweet Thread" was in reference too. He didn't ask a question or anything.

True, but they (7th's) are pretty prominent in blues and blues-rock. Cream, if I'm not mistaken used a bunch, as well as The Bluesbreakers. Maybe it was just Clapton, but they are used pretty commonly in blues, and blues is the root of rock.
#11
pretty sure there's some sabbath with seventh chords but i can't think at all right now
#12
yeah, but the heavier you go, like metal, the less blues you see- a whole lot of metal songs barely have a chord progression.

The dude from STP sneaks Major 7ths and 7ths in all over the place. So did Randy Rhodes. And the used pretty thick distortion, Marshalls and MXRs respectfully.

Not to mention Jerry Cantrell from AICs and his tone is driven by MESA.

It is possible to lay in some really nice, extended chords with distortion. You just have to have a really nice, articulate distortion.

Don't be such an ass. Anyways, I'm not sure how that would sound, but who knows, I've heard a few guys use jazz stuff in metal so go for it. Seventh power chords sound bad ass.
