Following Montgomery's example, we'll move it down to the next chord note (the 3rd), where it will sound as follows. Note that the general direction towards the end of the phrase is changed, to create a tonic resolution.

In examples 1.4 - 1.6, the same procedure is employed in dorian tonality.

Wes Montgomery's habit of circling around chord notes is the guiding principle for how I chose to organize a phrase from the very significant Røros tradition of folk music: In their polstunes, they often start off with a muted first beat, entering on the second 8th note, or even later. This little idiosyncrasy can throw visitors off the beat, and I think it's safe to say it constitutes a marker for Norwegian folk music. My chosen example is from "Pols etter Henning Trøen", as played by fiddler Tron Steffen Westberg.

The last chord note available to us is the root note.
