Here is another figure that came out of the rhythm revolution of the 1970s.
With its long note on the second sixteenth note, here is one more musical anapest.

 

This figure and the preceding one comprise sixteenth note syncopations.
These syncopations are comparable to the eighth note ones we've seen, except that they go twice faster.
