Metronome help on time trainer app - problems with 6/8

Hi all,

Could someone explain to me the beats and division sections on Justin’s metronome? Am having real difficulty with the 6:8 time signature , it is really fast and confusing. Thanks in advance

Can you get the feeling of songs in 6/8? The 6/8 has been confusing for me as well and it helped me hugely to tap my foot only on beat 1 and 4. As I’m progressing I’m learning to tap 6 times, but at the beginning they were as you say fast and confusing. 1 and 4 are the main pulses, so it is 2 beats and each one of them is divided into 3. But the main thing with the 6/8 is listening to songs and get the feeling of it.
