Say you have a harmonic progression like this:
There is an unlimited amount of possibilities in regards to how you can voice them to have good voice leading.
A quick two rule for harmonic voicings is to determine the bottom and the top by:
- Keeping the root/bass note at the bottom
- Make a roughly stagnant melodic line at the top.
This is because the chord voicings are to give harmony and nothing else; not to give a counter melody that will interfere.
