Bonus - Open voicings

Darius Brubeck Lesson time: (3min 8sec)

"Open Voicing" is the way in which the notes of chords are assigned across a range wider than one octave. Darius explains how to use voicing to make your part stands out as something different, as a distinct voice that adds something to the melody - ie. not the same as the melody or underlying harmony.
