Hey everyone I have read from a few websites/books that it is a good idea to turn the "Vm" chord into a "V7" chord when you are working in a minor key, so that it points more strongly to the "I" chord. But wouldn't you then be out of key by changing the minor 3rd in the "V" chord into a major 3rd? I don't understand how this works as you would also have to change that note in the melody to avoid sound dissonant, or is that the whole idea? I was thinking maybe you should make that a permanent change for the key? So for example if you are writing in A minor, change the G to a G♯ and keep it that way for both the harmony and the melody? How does this whole idea work? Thanks for your help
