The key to understanding this is to look where the little target tones/enclosure motif/melody starts.
Here we have two.
The first is “OFF” the BEAT
and the second is “ON” the beat
Example 1: “Off Beat” classic target tone/enclosure set-up
Example 2: “On the beat” and in the bar set-up in the improvised line [Target tone/Enclosure]
What you will notice is that the Chord tones are “on” the beat [Strong] whilst the chromatic or unessential notes are “Off” the beat.
This is the key to how it works and how to create beautiful flowing lines easily!
