Cool Voicing for 7th Chords

One neat way to split up a chord in both hands is to play the 1-5 in the left hand with the 7 3 5 in the right hand.

Cmaj7 becomes B E G (Right Hand) / C G (Left Hand)

Cm7 becomes Bb Eb G / C G

C7 becomes C G / Bb E G

C7+5 becomes C Ab / Bb E Ab

Cm7b5 becomes C Gb / Bb Eb Gb

and the list just goes on and on!

This is called a voicing!  There are many other types of voicings.
