The 6/8 March, along with the Jig, is written in compound time (beats divided into groups of three). However, the underlying subdivisions in the 6/8 March are different than those of the Jig. In a Jig, the underlying subdivision is three equal eighth notes (Jig-gi-ty). For the 6/8 March, the underlying subdivision is a dotted eighth note beamed to a sixteenth and a regular eighth note. The dot and cut within the triplet creates swing. To reproduce this swing rhythm, simply say the phrase "Amsterdam, Amsterdam".
