What is the difference between 3/4 and 6/8? 3/4 - counts "1 2 3" 6/8 - counts "ONE two three FOUR five six" The underlying pulse is different Done ✔

"3/4 is counted with accents on 1, 3 and 5"??? are you mental? you do understand there's no 5th beat in 3/4 right?
Very to the point. Would be great if you could speak more clearly, though!
Darien Lux
Pretty much the same.
Derrick Villanueva
Loved it thank you.
Dave Burgess
Take advice from me,don't concentrate to much on counting,,,just feel it,,,trust me it does work
If you watch the COUNT on Sesame Street you will at least learn 8/2 time when he sings 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, 9,10 LOL

The difference is on the ACCENTED note: 3/4 = ONE two THREE four FIVE six...using same rhythm as ONE two ONE two ONE two 6/8 = ONE two three FOUR five six.....Actually..to me..6/8 has more of a" Waltz" feel to it
Thanks, this helped a lot!
most clear explanation. thanks.
