Two of the most common chord types are the Major and the Dominant 7th. When played together they create a simple “Turn-around” that is commonly used to repeat a sequence of chords in a song.
Major chords sound positive and happy. They set the mood for the song when they are the first chord played. Dominant 7th chords sound something like a question. They need an answer, or resolution. It’s like their asking: “When are we going to go back to the beginning (first chord) so that we can end this song?”
