I have a progression I wrote that is in 6/4, but is played using 8th note triplets throughout. I feel like I'm not writing this in a correct time signature, so I was wondering if anyone could offer me some insight as to how I could make this easier to read.

two measures of 9/8 for each measure of 6/4 perhaps.

it totally depends on the accent. Make a drum track for it in gp5 and check if it works.

Yeah, it depends where the accents are. It could be two bars of 9/8, or three bars of 3/4, or three bars of 6/8 depending entirely on where the accents are.

It came out to be 6/8. Thanks guys.


6/8 = usually 1-2-3-4-5-6
6/4 = usually accent wherever like 1-2-3-4-5-6
3/4 = usually 1 - 2 - 3 or 1 - 2 - 3 or 1 - 2 - 3

I thought the time signatures accents were determined by the first note (I know the basic rules but maybe I misunderstood something). So in your second two 3/4 examples, wouldn't they just be leading up from the last measure?

No no no, there's a lot you can do with accents. I like the 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 8th-note pattern in 4/4.

There's a good chance two of the three 3/4 rhythms he posted will end up sounding like the third one with pickup notes, though.
