if you're a dancer, then you feel the rythem and move your feet to the beat of the music, or if you tap your feet to the music you hear, you are following the beat of the music. most times we are not even aware we are doing it. Pay attention the next time you listen to a song, and you will see what I mean. the two most common times are 4/4 and 3/4 time. These are the most recognizable time signiatures. 4/4 time is four beats to a measure, which counts out: one two three four. Most dance music is in 4/4. 3/4 time is : one two three, one two three. Waltzes are in 3/4 time. This is a good start, but there are many other time signiatures. If you scan several of the posts on this forum, you'll find many sites with tutorial info, such as www.teoria.com. Hope this helps,good luck, and welcome to the forum. there are many knowledgable musicians on this site.
