Richard Thompson - RT Dec 17, 2018
There has been speculation! - as to the time signature of 'Her Love Was Meant For Me' on the 13 Rivers CD. It is written in 3/4, and can be heard that way if you follow the spoken count in. Because the snare drum anticipates the backbeat, you can also hear it as 6/8, but it wasn't intended that way. If you isolate the guitars and vocals, it is clearly 3/4. If you isolate the bass and drums, it sounds 6/8. Ho hum...hear it as you will, but it was never intended to be a shuffle, more a kind of jumpy 3/4.
