Bob,

When I work in 6/8 or 12/8, I always use swing style and a 4/4 style. Doing this, half a bar in 4/4 equals one bar of 6/8.

This works because in swing style the notes are based around groups of triplets. The only difference is notation is in 1/4-note triplets rather than dotted quarter notes. The effect is the same, though.

Also, this might be worth trying...

1. Open style picker.

2. Click on "Tempo" to sort by the "Tempo" column in ascending order.

3. Scroll to the top and have a listen to the demos of the 12-8 styles at 40 bpm. Some of these have a fantastic 6-8 feel.

Below is an example MGU file I created using a swing style. The link to the MGU is beneath the images.

Even though I entered the notes in 4/4, I can change the view to 6/8 by clicking on the option I've labeled #1/#2 on the image of music as displayed in Notation Mode.

Regards,
Noel
