1) Im a clockwise cat ...but will occasionally sweep counter clockwise for certain patterns....or even in a basic pattern every now and then as a turn around or to shake up the feel

2) I had to sit down and play for a second to answer this one.....I definitely alternate
sometimes 2
sometimes 2 and 3
sometimes just 3
sometimes the "and" of 1 or 2 or maybe 3 ...hahahaha

its kinda all over the place for me

but if its intended to be a proper waltz I will probably do 2 and 3
