You explained that in another note, that you have a turn left followed
by a separate progression.  I feel that it's awkward and less likely
to have "zero-beat moves" or doing a figure by stealing time from the
next. I think a reconstruation that avoids them is likelier or at
least smoother, other things being equal.
