I'm trying to get out of the "simple time VS compound" tunnel, but I'm still stuck with a bunch of doubts.
To make things clear I wrote the following pentagrams with different time signatures.
Simple time signatures
Compound time signatures
However when I play them on TuxGuitar I can hear no difference. Sow how things work?
Reading on the internet they talk about "strong", "medium strong" and "soft" beats. But who defines how many and where these "accent" should be placed? Is there something mathematical or is it just a convention?
