#6 LEARN FREE MUSIC THEORY
In this lesson of learn free music theory, I cover dotted notes and triplets. CORRECTION! Where it says "duple" in this lesson it should say "simple". This is why: How many beats per group? ( Simple or compound) Simple = groups of 2 ( 1 2 ) ( 1 2) ( 1 2) etc Compound = groups of 3 ( 1 2 3 ) ( 1 2 3 ) ( 1 2 3) etc How many groups per bar? (Duple, Triple or Quadruple) Duple = 2 groups per bar |(group) (group)|(group) (group)| Triple = 3 groups per bar |(group) (group) (group)|(group) (group) (group)| Quadruple = 4 groups per bar |(group) (group) (group) (group)|(group) (group) (group) (group)| So 6/8 is Compound Duple time ( 2 groups of 3) ( 1 2 3 ) ( 4 5 6 ) My original mistake in the video was swapping simple and duple terms. So as convoluted as this all sounds, it's actually really simple stuff, just using more complicated words than necessary. Really sorry for the mistake!!! :(
