Thread Name: 3/4 or 4/4 time?
Subject: RE: 3/4 or 4/4 time?
When I compose tunes, some portion of it springs into my head fully formed, then I figure out what time it's in. I don't seem to have an unconscious preference.

4/4 often has more drive than 3/4, which is often more laid back. The backbeat, of course, is a 4/4 thing.
