Green Beats - "67": 4/4 to 12/8 transition.

In the Green Beat's exercise "67", the meter change printed in the book at the 4/4 to 12/8 bar is "quarter note = dotted quarter note"(In my Green Beats book at least). Meaning that it would switch from a duple to triple feel. But, after listening to the recording offered by Tapspace, I realized that when the time signature changes from 4/4 to 12/8, the 8th note remains constant (there is no switch to a triplet feel, until later at the sixlets) . Should'nt the meter change be "8th note = 8th note" rather than "quarter note = dotted quarter note"? Is this an error or am I mistaken?.

You are correct. The tempos in the original recording for "67" were not correct. Thank you for calling that to our attention.

As of today (Sep 15, 2006), the GREEN BEATS PLAYER has been updated with the correct recording of "67." For anyone who has already downloaded this recording, we suggest you:

1) In your web browser, select ";clear cache"; or ";empty cache";

2) Refresh the Green Beats page where you'll see the player.

3) Click on the recording for "67" and you should now hear the updated version with correct tempo.

4) Click the down-arrow to download to your computer.

Thank you for your understanding with this goof on our end.
