IIm - V7 Intro with See-Saw

Definition:

Instead of using a preset Introduction, you can create your own intro by playing keys in a see-saw motion.

How to create the Intro:

To play an intro that uses this style, play chords IIm and V7 anywhere you feel like it in the See-Saw.  Using the Key of C as an example, just start with the Dm chord and end on the G7 chord.

In other words, using Dm (IIm) as the start of your descent of the see-saw, you would play until you reach the G7 (V7)

The attached PDF chart, shows the sequence of notes in any Key, which can make anyone sound like a professional when creating your own introductions.

This video link demonstrates the technique, which can make anyone sound like a professional.
