Group B: The Round Reel
Group B focuses on the Round Reel written with a time signature of 2/2. 2/2 time, also known as "cut time", looks almost identical to 4/4. The important difference is that a bar of cut time only has two beats and a bar of 4/4 time has four. Round reels are the only style using simple time signatures (others include 2/4, 3/4, 4/4) that are played without swing. They may also be referred to as "straight".
