Time signatures can be divided into two categories depending on their beat division. Simple meter songs use a duple beat division. Examples are: 2/4, 4/4, 3/4, 2/2. Compound meter songs use a triple beat division. Examples are: 6/8, 9/8, 12/8. Today's lesson gives you practice reading rhythms in simple and compound meter.
