Did you change the 3/4 to 6/8? The notation doesn't change. Select the 3/4. Select 6/8 from the time signature palette.

Except if you don't want the rests in the pick-up measure, you can create a new guitar score with the proper 8th note rest pick-up measure and time signature. Then copy the notes in the original score. In the new score, select the initial 8th rest and CTRL (CMD)+SHIFT+Q.

I think, It is better to use "Cut" instead of "Copy". And you should not cut out the upbeat but adjust it by hand instead. As the number of measures is also halved, the back half of the score will otherwise remain as it was.

And you will probably also have to adjust the tempo accordingly, as the score now plays at twice the speed.
