is thi sa voice leading issue?
I'm running into issues when creating my harmony section for pop songs, I can create melodies, chord progressions, basslines and percussion but I'm running into issues with my chords.
To be more specific, generally are the chords on one instrument or can you spread each note of the chord across a few instruments? If I was to layer the chords with a different instrument can I invert them, add extensions, etc.
If I was to spread the chord across instruments should they follow 4 voice harmony theory?
If I was to spread them out should I have the closed chords as a main layer and the result spread out supporting them, e.g have the chords on a piano and then double the top line and put it on a pad.
Sorry for the noob question. Thanks
