what I was thinking, ain't no rap music in 3/4

edit: actually

how do you determine the difference between in triplets and 3/4 time signature? I remember doing it in GCSE music but that was a while ago

edit: nah this ain't

triplets is counting in threes really quickly, 3/4 means three crotchets (quarter notes in 4/4) per bar, the first number tells you how many notes in a bar, the second number tells you the length of the note.

I thought the Jay-Z and Kanye tracks were both 3/4, I though triplets was just adding a swing so 3 notes are slightly longer and take the space of 4 notes?

There was an Artful Dodger tune in 3/3 iirc, they were trying to call it 3-step.

technically a 3/4 song is the equivalent of a 4/4 song using only triplets though innit? just at different tempos
