In this example, comprising and eight-note string-pair cell using notes of the A minor Blues scale, each idea takes one and a half beats (or 12 16th-notes) to complete, which, rh1y2thm(1i4c)ally, makes the pattern less repetitive or predictable. Technically, with this particular example, it will help if you focus on tapping out an eighth-note rhythm with the picking hand.
