Example 1 is our first 6 note sequence, in B minor. Starting on F#, the 5th degree of the scale, we descend the scale in sextuplets, doubling back one note up the scale after every descending 3. Technically this is only a 3 note sequence, but played in sextuplets. Very effective, and a great starting point. Somewhere around the BPM of 110 is pretty fast, and very impressive!
Example 2 is another example of the same concept, only in E minor this time. Starting on the Root, E, we sequence down 3 notes at a time, coming back up one note, then dropping 3 once again. The concept of 3’s here is the keystone. You’re moving in 3’s but it’s a pattern of 6 rhythmically.
