> A cool example of the "Waldstein" sequence C-G6-Bb-F6 is "Hey  
> Joe" (which I know only in the Hendrix version: C-G-D-A-E).

Sorry, don't know what I was thinking.  Waldstein and Hey Joe are of  
course different sequences, both of which involve descending stepwise  
voice leading.  One ascends by fifths, the other alternates ascending  
fifths with ascending minor thirds.
