Maybe I should be a little more specific: I mean 50 and 60 beats per minute 
counting two beats to the measure, each beat divided in three. If one 
counts six quick beats to the measure (or quick beats to a shorter measure) 
then this translates to 150 and 180. I tend to count this music as having 
two slow beats to a measure (like two singles), but one could certainly 
count it otherwise.
