    Re: Time signatures hurting my head again

    You're not meeting me halfway, you're agreeing 100% with me.
    Snaretan said you could write it in 9/8, but it would be ridiculous. I said he was right. You say "You "could" write it in 9/8, but you...

    Woah! I don't know anyone on this site personally, so this is a totally objective statement. Sorry, Drummer, but you're wrong there and re being able to write it in 9/8, Snare tan is correct.

    Re: Time signatures hurting my head again

    I've seen and played this feel when backing singers and shows. More often than not, at this sort of tempo and feel, it's written in 3/4. If it was written in 6/8, it wouldn't be a problem either, but...
