    minor 2nd in the top voice, and minor 9th

    cut to the chase...In the seventh chords, i why is it that it is not used the inversion with the root on top with its major 7th?
    and also in the drop 3 voicings what is wrong with the dissonance of the m 9th in the maj 7th chords.?
    thank you so much!

    Hi salsainglesa,

    The general idea is to hide the dissonance to the "safe" area - that is to avoid clashes with melody (which is usually the top voice) and bass - most audible tones. Though this is a rule to break...

    This is my guess anyways

    Zatz.
    Zadd9 -> A6 -> T#9b5 -> Zmaj7

    And if you have a Maj7b9, ommiting the root, you have a m7b5 a half step higher. Its mainly just for good taste.
    Hard luck and trouble...
