What are Drop 2 Voicings?
The Same Notes, but Rearranged for new Options
Drop 2 voicings are built by taking your standard chord, and "dropping" the second by one octave. This "dropped" note is now the bass note of the chord, and can result in a more colorful, expressive voicing to your standard chord shapes. The same notes are played, but the ordering gives the chord a much different vibe and tonality.
If your standard chords are feeling stale, drop-2 voicings are an easy way to add more emotional expressiveness, and bring your progression to life with new tonality.
Coloring Your Progression
Chord progressions rely on tension and resolution, but often times can become predictable. Adding "color" with new voicings can move your creativity into a new direction.
