#beginquote# speed has nothing to do with it. In 4/4 you count "1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4" in 3/4 you count "1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3." 3/4 is often associated with waltzes. Think of a song in 4/4 and count it 1, 2, 3, 4, then try counting it 1, 2, 3 and see how messed up and awkward it sounds. The down beats would be all off, and the phrasing would be completely messed up. #endquote#
