In this post we will go one further than the last post. This time we will take a group of six [Sextuplets] and make a tetrachord and a half from it.

This will make 4+ 2 which will make us nail the changes with 4 notes on the first chord and 2 notes on the second chord with a short rest to reset our fretting hand to repeat the pattern again on the next two chords.
