Rory,

Good fun bro'. Further to your idea of starting the pattern on different chord tones, something that works well for me, is to practice this pattern starting from the 1st 3rd 4th 5th etc and then practice leading into those tones in a variety of rhythmic and melodic ways.
If I'm using a triplet on beat 4 to lead into this pattern, I might choose 3 notes of the blues scale to lead into the note. Next I might choose a chromatic triplet lead in, or a triad. Once these digital patterns are assimilated, I find that building up a repertoire of different rhythmic and melodic approaches to them, increases their usefulness a hundredfold.
