#beginquote# I think what ghatmaker is referring to is the tempo of the song. The time signature will not help in this as it serves to tell you the number of beats and the nature of the notes. The metronome mark (usually at the top, above the first bar) will indicate the desired tempo of the song. It tells you the desired number of notes of that particular note value in 60 seconds. For example, a metronome mark of "a crotchet = 60) means there should be 60 beats in a minute...... therefore the tempo is such that one beat takes approximately one second. Hope this is helpful. #endquote#
