|Looking at the first two measure pattern, it consists of our introductory six notes which span four beats, followed by a second group spanning four beats.|
Unlike the second group, however, the introductory six notes can naturally be divided into two rhythmically identical, two-beat phrases consisting of two eight notes and a quarter note.
Taken two beats at a time, the first two measures look like this.
The same argument can be made for the second two-measure pattern.
