Dominant (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (303 words)

Modulation into the dominant key often creates a sense of increased tension; as opposed to modulation into subdominant (fourth note of the scale), which creates a sense of musical relaxation (because the tonic key is the dominant of its subdominant key: in F major, the dominant is C).
