Group D: The 6/8 March
Group D covers the 6/8 March. The 6/8 March is an interesting style written in compound time but played with a swing feel. The swing is created by the use of dot/cut and cut/dot rhythms played alongside regular quarter notes and eighth notes. Completion of these exercises will allow you to read not only 6/8 marches but also those written in 9/8 and 12/8 time.
