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".

Yes, Sibelius questions are on-topic here. And yes, the Sibelius help forum is very hard to navigate. But a lot of Sibelius experts read and post on the Sibelius help forum frequently. It's a good place to go for Sibelius users.

comment German in Bach's Cantatas
I would say it "would be like learning to speak and read English by studying the King James translation of the Bible." In fact, a lot of Bach's textual language is reminiscent of Martin Luther's German translation of the Bible, which of course pre-dates Bach by a century and a half.

comment German in Bach's Cantatas
I learned a lot of German by studying the lyrics to Romantic-era art song, starting with the lyrics used by Schubert and other composers throughout the 1800s. This involves a much broader vocabulary than church music.

comment Can I use my Roland Cube 15 guitar amplifier with a digital piano?
Yes, you can connect an acoustic-electric guitar through the Input jack. You will want to select the "Clean" setting rather than the "Lead" setting.
