example 6 [Four-note cell, 2-2 note-configuration] The 10-note rhythmic groupings in this example are played in a descending fashion within A minor Pentatonic using large stretches (perfect 4ths) and some accents.
example 7 [Four-note cell, 2-2 note-configuration] Another example of 10-note rhythmic groupings. Again, with accents that help to provide more rhythmic interest.
example 8 [Six-note cell, 3-3 note-configuration] This example using 10-note rhythmic2 groupings features accents with chromaticism (courtesy of the b5 of the minor Blues scale). A minor Blues scale: A-C-d-Eb-E-G
example 9 [Four-note cell, 2-2 note-configuration] Unusually, 11-note rhythmic groupings are employed here: using the same A minor Pentatonic scale string-pair cell(s) as used in Ex7.
example 10 [Four-note cell, 2-2 note-configuration] Now for the first in a series of examples featuring 12-note rhythmic groupings. Each grouping is played using accents, and each string-pair cell is based upon a particular inversion of an Am7 arpeggio with no 4th.
