Adding the F Base


To form the G/F chord, you need to add an F note at the bass. This means that you’re adding the 7th degree of the chord as a base note.

This chord appears frequently as a “passing chord”. That is, the bass note F is just a passing note leading to, for example, the E minor chord.

Because the G/F chord also contains a 7th degree, it can also work in situations where the 7th degree is implied, thus it can lead to a resolution in C.
