This song is in triple meter and has a time signature of 3/4. I’m pretty sure I could have written it in 6/8 as well, but 3/4 feels a little simpler to me. I don’t write in triple meter very much though, so I’m still figuring out the different accompaniment patterns I can use. Be sure to listen to the video to get a sense of the dynamics. For example, the right hands notes during the intro are not all played with the same volume. The downbeat is emphasized and the other two seem to echo away. I use this echo effect at several different spots throughout the song.
