The technology used in the Chord tool allows us to display multiple voicings and shapes for any given chord. Depending on the context a chord is used in, alternative voicings can be very useful for smooth voice leading or when you want a specific note as the top voice on the chord (for example, as a chordal melody or to gel better with the melody of a song). Sometimes alternative chord voicings can inspire new and creative ideas that a standard voicing may not lead to.
