West Coast music is played with a 4/4 Time Signature meaning that there are three (4) beats per measure with four (4) quarter notes per measure. There are three (3) types of syncopations (step, step, triple step) (one, two) (one, step)
West Coast primarily uses a six count but also an eight count and sometimes four count
Musicality is feeling the music and incorporating the music in your movements. Essentially, your body, your mind and the music become one. The experience then feels good and you want more. For some people, I truly believe that there is an actual endorphin release the same way that runners experience a "runner's high".
