This piece was written to enable students to understand the feel of 6/8 and 3/4 being used in alternate bars. Like all folk music used for dance, the beat is extremely important, and must be “felt in the music” rather than “read off the page”. In the 6/8 bars, the accent will shift from the down bow to the up bow, and in the 3/4 bars, the first beat must be felt strongly.
