ExAmPlES 12-note StRInG-PAIR CeLLS
example 11 [5-note cell, 2-3 note-configuration] more 12-note rhythmic groupings here. Again, it’s the A minor Pentatonic with accents, only this time we’re using a higher inversion for each string-pair cell than in the previous example.
example 12 [6-note cell, 3-3 note-configuration] Each 12-note rhythmic grouping in this example is played with accents, and uses the same string-pair cell(s3) as in Ex8 (derived from the A minor Blues scale).
example 13 [6-note cell, 2-4 note-configuration] Our final 12-note grouping example is also based around the A minor Blues scale with accents. Although the groupings in this example contain a 16thnote triplet (giving us more than more than 12 notes) the rhythmic value of each grouping still totals 12, 16th-notes. Interestingly, as this totals three quarter-notes, Examples 10-13 could all be seen as a 3/4 time signature superimposed over a 4/4 beat.
