Re: Winding Down.....Slow 18/8

Listening to this tune, the time signature doesn't fit. You have 7 groups in each bar, simple time. Not exactly sure what you intended, but the compound time lilt from crotchet and quaver in a beat just isn't there. 18/8 is 6 groups of dotted crotchet.

Did the software you used not flag this up?
If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!

Never did have seven groups:..only six...I have laid it out as to how I like it, but,
needless to say others will have their own way expressing as they see fit. Once its published
a Tune is never your own. The fermate's are there to pull the notes out.

Willie, the 6/4 is far better.
