|Voices in blue are the ones that move. Notice that the outsides|
of the chord stay put, while the inner voices make small changes.
Here's a way to add some extra crunch to a dominant chord, with the 13th on the top.
A few reasons I like this harmonic shift:
- It all happens in the middle of the voicing. The outter voices stay put.
- The shifts are small (half steps), but the harmonic effect is big.
- The top two shifting voices in the right hand move in contrary motion, which is great.

May your dominant chords be prolonged and extra-crunchy. Enjoy.
