The image above (from Korean composer Byung Dong Paik's Theory of Harmonics, page 127) shows progressions diminished and half-diminished 7th chords
What I'm curious about here is that the positions of the notes in minor (diminished) at the top of the image and major (half diminished) at the bottom of the image are different.
From left to right, chords in C minor start with B-D-F-A, whereas in C major they start with B-A-F-D.
But why different positions? If you swap the chords that start in C minor and the ones that start in C major, will there be any problems with the progression?
Or is it just a change to show that you can do a lot of different things? The book doesn't explain much about this.
So, if you know something I don't know, please let me know.
