I tried so hard to understand the difference between notes and beats but I couldn't. Surprisingly there are countless videos on the subject on youtube, but no video could drive the point home.
One video on youtube at 1:18 mentioned that a quarter note triplet is worth 2 beats, why? How can I be able to work out the time signature absolutely spot on? I particularly confuse 6/8 and 3/4 because the former simplifies mathematically to the latter. How does the different time signatures affect the sound of music?
