I am working on the nocturne by Carl Henzen, which is an andantino in 6/8. If andantino is approx. 70 bpm, I am wondering if that is 70 quarter notes (which is the usual unit for speed), or 70 dotted quarter notes per minute (because the beats are on the 1st and 4th note)
I think normally in 6/8, it should be the dotted quarter note, but for this particular piece, it seems too fast, so that's why I start doubting.
By the way, this is one of the nicest beginner's pieces I have played so far.
