I took a bit of a mathematical approach constructing this example. Since the bass player is playing on the 2nd, the 6th and the 9th 16th notes in each bar, I thought it would be fun to create a lick that played whenever the bass player isn't playing.

The result was this example. In the first bar, we will play when the bass player rests, and in the second bar we'll switch it up, and play along with the bass.

This is a fun example of how you can use the notation to create unusual rhythms and new ideas.
