    Little help, please.

    I can't seem to find this anywhere... I know that, ii, iii, vi are minor and l, lV, V are major and VII° diminished in any given key... but what about dominant 7? Let's say a G chord in key of A or Bb in key of C. Is there something that works in this situation or am I chasing something that doesn't exist or is only harmonious in a totally rare/complicated situation? I've seen some chord progressions that don't quite seem to add up to me and I'm wondering if this might be part of it..

    I'm just trying to learn a little bit more about music theory as I plunk my way around...I will not be offended if you tell me I don't know what I'm talking about.. I'm prolly in over my head.

    If my previous post had a question that was too stupid for you to answer, here's another one....

    How does Db fit in this progression?? The key is Bb, Db doesn't fit in the major scale, it's the iii...???

    I think maybe your book has a misprint. It shows only 2 flats in that scale, which is correct for b flat (b flat and e flat), but then tells you d flat is in there. I think it should just be D. (B♭, C, D, E♭, F, G, and A)

    That's what i thought maybe happened but I had trouble trying to figure out what it should be.
    Thanks!
