    Sequences are groups of notes that use the same pattern.

There are many possibilities.    They can be diatonic or chromatic.

Diatonic sequences use scale notes.
These sequences might use different intervals in each group of notes.

Chromatic sequences use any note.
These sequences use the same intervals from one group to the next.

# Diatonic

Use the sequencing chart (below)

This scale is a minor scale   1,  2,  b3,  4,  5,  b6,  b7       See theory, major minor or modes

Mark the note you want with a black circle
Each line with a circle represents one note. Use dividing lines

Follow the pattern and the scale.

This sequence uses a four note pattern.   Separate each pattern set.

The pattern is the same but the intervals are different.

Set 1  =  1   2      b3    4
Set 2  =  1   b2    b3    4

Set two starts on the 2nd interval of the scale.  You can use any starting interval.
Sequences commonly use 3 or 4 note pattern sets

3 notes = probably triplets
4 notes = probably 16th notes

You can use any number of notes in a pattern set.

This shows the sequencing chart.

# Chromatic

Follow the interval pattern exactly.
Don't follow the scale exactly.
The intervals in the first pattern set are 1  b3  5  b6
The intervals in the second set are the same.
Set 2 starts a 4th up.   Use any starting interval. # Shape markers

An alternative marking system. The numbers represent
:

The order of the notes
The number of lines in each shape.

This system saves space.      You'll have room to write variations

This is the same pattern in both charts:  # Guitar sequencing chart
