Click on Styles, click on All, then click on Search and enter 6/8 into the search box, click OK. Continue doing that and you will access every BIAB style that has "6/8" in it's description. You'll notice that many of them are also 3/4 time. Winking The quickest way to listen to the various styles is to enter some chords into BIAB and start it playing, then go to styles/search and access the various 6/8 styles while the file is playing.

You can use 3/4 timing for 6/8.
It just takes twice as many measures.
Instead of 6 beats to the measure, you'll have 3 beats so the song will be twice as long.
