comment Which disco tracks were the most influential in electronic music?
This should stay closed. It is an entirely subjective topic that would cause the wrong kind of open-ended discussion according to the guidelines of this site. Yes, every question has some degree of subjectivity, but you have to draw a line somewhere. This one is totally subjective.

comment How much do piano tuning lessons usually cost?
What nation do you live in? I'm sure prices vary a great deal with nationality and location.

comment Was the viola da gamba or violin particularly associated with England in the late 16th or early 17th century?
I recently started to learn to play viola da gamba, having come from playing guitar. The connection for me is obvious. I do know one player who plays both viola da gamba and lute, but most viol players I know have come from playing regular cello or violin and are totally ignorant of the gamba/guitar/lute connection. My friend, well-known USA viola da gamba and Baroque cello virtuoso Brent Wissick told me, point blank, "the viola da gamba is a lute that you play with a bow." music.unc.edu/facstaff/wissick

comment Altering the sound of a guitar to match a sitar
There is such a thing as a conventional electric guitar with a sitar-like bridge and sympathetic strings. They first came out in the early 70s; several manufacturers make them today, and many models are affordable. Google "electric sitar". Look for models by Rogue, Italia, Agile, and Jerry Jones.

comment Difference between “Bar” and “Measure”
The terms are interchangeable. There is no distinction. However, the term "measure" was used in a similar sense as "bar" in older English. "Let us measure them a measure" in Shakespeare means "Let's dance for them for a few bars".
