Default Waltz Styles - 20-03-2013, 11:30 AM

I'm wondering if 3/4 Time is used exclusively for waltz. Sometimes I choose a waltz style to accompany a piece of music set in other time signatures, and it sounds OK. Am I deluding myself? Trevor from Australia.

Hi Trevor

Go with what you think sounds 'OK' to you.

I am flexible when using any time signatures for a song.

For example, I have a registrations set up in both 3/4 and 4/4 for the song 'Morning Has Broken'.

I enjoy playing them both, and to me, Cat Stevens' great composition sounds lovely using both time signatures.

Music Theory / Time / Tempo, Time Signature, Idiom I found this interesting site to-day. It says, among other things, that every waltz is in 3-4 time, but not every 3-4 piece is a waltz. Also says,a fast waltz may be as fast as 300 "The King And I"

Actually, there are other dance rhythms in 3/4, like the Minuet for instance. You will find many Minuets in light-classical music books for the piano. Bach, Beethoven and Mozart have written numerous, very easy to play Minuets, Mozart even before he was seven! One of the most famous classical pieces of all times is the very well-known Minuet by Boccherini (by the way, this one is a ROM MIDI song on numerous Yamaha keyboards). I think the Polonaise is also written in 3/4, Chopin wrote many of them.

thanks VBDX. Somewhere I have a casette [tape recording] of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" written in the style of Mozart, and after a few bars it switches to the same piece of music written in the style of Strauss , and so on, until they have covered about six different composers,all playng "The Twelve Days Of Christmas"
If I had trained my ear in my youth, I suppose I could look , later this evening, for that tape recording, put it in my tape deck, and say which time signature is being used, by the orchestra to portray the manner in which that composer would have played "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" had he /she been alive today.
I expect tempo would also enter into the equation.
Maybe, one of our members, may know the name of the orchestra, and could let me know, as I have heaps of cassettes, and no index, and anyway,I doubt if I could be confident that my ear could pick up a time signature or should I say beat.

I can't find the cassette of "The Twelve days of Christmas" but I've found it on U Tube. just go to Google and type in "daddybearphillip a musical journey"
You can listen to it there, and read the comments.It is written by Craig Courtney.

I would like to revisit this site as, in spite of lots of helpful replies, I am still not clear about what I'm doing, and afraid that I am deluding myself. I suppose if I played my PSR 750 in front of somebody who was really musical, they would be able to tell me if I am on the right track, but ,as I live in a remote area, that has not been possible.
To-day, I played" Danny Boy" also known as" Londonderry Air" as a waltz, and I thought it sounded great.
Yet, every music book says it is in 4/4 time .One day I will try posting my rendition on the Lonearranger site, and inviting comment, but at the moment, I think that the mechanics of doing that are a bit beyond my present abilities.

Just checking that the post I sent to-day got through to the Forum. Our telephone line [ADSL1] is sometimes not working.
