There is often confusion and disagreement when it comes to whether a song is in 3/4 time or 6/8 time. Although some songs can fit equally well into 3/4 or 6/8, usually one of these two meters is the far more obvious and intuitive choice when transcribing or conceptualizing a given piece of music. Let’s look at the differences between these two time signatures and also at how they interact with similar meters such as 9/8 or 12/8.
