... or from anyone who has an insight before I get lost. I've been practicing a "Key of the Week" (which has become a key every three weeks) and one of the things I have been doing is working through voicings of the chords within the key: I chord, ii chord, iii, chord...etc. Simple enough. I am also practicing jumping from the 1357 voicing to a closed voicing (7935). So here is what I'm noticing: when I voice the 1357 of the minor chord, the Abm7 in Gb, B and E for example, it voices the same way as a ii, iii, or vi. But when I voice it as a 7935 the added ninth can be different (????). For example, in the key of Gb, the (7935) Abm7 (ii) chord voices Gb, Bb, B, Eb, using the notes in the Gb scale, but in the key of E the Abm7 (iii) chord voices (7935) Gb A B Eb, using the notes in the E scale (?). My conclusion is that a dorian minor of Gb voiced like this has a different flavor than a phrygian minor of E voiced this way. Am I looking at this correctly or have I missed something?
