Now let's talk about how the subdivisions work in this new 3/4 rhythm.

So we've covered the fact that there are only three quarter notes now, and we still call them quarter notes even though there are only three.

We also still call the subdivisions 8th notes, even though there are now only six of them (2 per quarter note). So if you verbalize the 8th notes that would be '1 and 2 and 3 and'.
