Happy 3/4

FYI - 3/4 is NOT odd time....

(I am sure that you already know that...)

But it can be fun to use for variation in your writing..... and its not just for Waltzes anymore

I have two favorite examples:
Iron Maiden - off of Piece of Mind - beginning starts in 3/4

Symphony X - a good part of the song is in 3/4 so very cool (they also incorporate 5/4, 4/4, (5/8 + 13/8), (13/8 + 14/8)) I was impressed...

Oddly Yours,
