|Clave wheel combinations|
There are many ways to look at this clave wheel thing. You can start a wheel on every step of the 12 note matrix in 6/8 (clave is a two bar pattern), as we did on all 16 steps for the 4/4 clave wheels. However, for now in 6/8 we're only starting a new wheel on a note of the clave patterns, resulting in 5 clave wheels, at least for purposes of this page. Here then is an example of the first two 6/8 clave wheels...put together. If you're not quite sure what we're doing here, please refer to the Wheels of Bembe and Clave Wheel pages...
