Study-Practice: Using your knowledge of scales and chord structure (and your ears of course), transpose these voicings to all twelve keys, building an immense chord vocabulary... a vocabulary that integrates visio-spatial, aural, and kinesthetic awareness!

This voicing, like all others, is not a "rule". It is just an idea for your consideration and exploration. Feel free to add, subtract, double, and invert notes to suit your personal taste.
