12/8 is what you end up with. It is just very fiddly adding the quaver, semiquaver pairs.

Hi Donald,
My (or rather Richard's) solution is shown below.
Multiline text and Music with text:
 \hspace #16 ┌  \hspace #2  \italic {3} \hspace #2  ┐
¶\bold "Swing it!" { \note {8} #UP } { \note {8} #UP } = { \note {4} #UP } \hspace #2 {
\note {8} #UP }

Best wishes

I'd like to set something similar to 'eighth note = triplet' (attached tempo marking)

I see 'Beat Change' under Directives -> Markings -> Tempi and Metronome marks

But for some reason I get an 'unable to typeset' warning when I attempt to use this.

I'm sure there's a simple solution that I'm just overlooking...
