Thread Name: 3/4 or 4/4 time?
Subject: RE: 3/4 or 4/4 time?
there are no advantages or disadvantages they are just time signatures, they are what they are, 3/4 can be a waltz it can also be a mazurka. 4/4 can be a march or a reel or bouree even sometimes hornpipes have been written in 4/4.
the best thing to do is listen carefully with your ears, select examples on you tube and listen
