Accentuate the positive......
Listen to a true classical waltz. The "One " beat is accented each time. One-2-3, One-2-3. (Heavy, identical accent on the "one", each time.)
In 6/8, the accent is different. In 6/8, the "one" is heavily accented, whereas the "four" is a lesser, weaker, accent.
ONE-2-3-four-5-6. ONE-2-3-four-5-6. ("Four" being a weaker accent.)
It all about the accents.
