Thanks for your replies. Your responses have been great and I agree as well. The actual transition from 2x4 to 2x6 studs occurs along the length of the shearwall. My original question must have been confusing. Most likely, I would have a vertical 3x4 stud lag screwed (to develop shear capacity) to a vertical 3x6 stud and the plywood offset would occur at that transition between 4" and 6" studs. I believe you could consider this as one wall to define aspect ratio. The addition of a hold-down at the transition as Gerard indicated would be a good addition as well.
