The Bar is Raised, How will you measure up!

1 2 3 4 /1 2 3 4/ 1 2 3 4/ 1 2 3 4...................................this may seem weird and all but it will make sense later. What I just wrote down was how you typically count 4/4 . As you can see each time I restart the counting there is a bar to seperate the counts. The Bars are for "contaning" the counts per each measure. Each measure is given its specific number of counts as specified by the time signiture. The time signiture is responsible for telling the performer what number of beats are in the measure. Thanks to the Harvard dictionary for assisting with my past four entries. You can see a bar and measure at this link.
