Hi,
This is a portion of the tab for the song In the desert by architects (incase you want to hear it).

What i would like to know is what is the time signature and how do i work this out?
My thoughts are that it is in 6/8 - correct?

Any tips for composition with signatures like these?

I just listened to it and I was getting a 4/4 pulse for some reason, but it's really syncopated so it's hard to tell.
Alvarez dreadnought
Gibson SG
EC-1000
Homemade Strat (seymour duncan classic stack p/ups)
Vox Tonelab (original desktop model) with full board footswitch
Vox AD50

Anything Gpb0216 posts is correct and he is especially good with time signatures. I suggest searching for some posts by him to learn how they work. You'll be able to answer your original question yourself.
