comment How can I get a violin sound from my electric guitar?
You could email a local college's music department and see if they can put you in touch with some violinists, cellists, and horn players. They could point out any impossible bits and hopefully even play it for you.

comment Octave clef: common usage?
The SATB choir I sing in uses music where the tenor part is often written on the bass clef and often on the treble octave clef. Sometimes the same short piece can include both (!?!?!) for example He Smiles Within His Cradle (carol 20 in the Oxford blue book starts with the tenors on the bass clef and ends with us on the octave treble. Another piece we are singing has us on the octave treble clef but without the octave marking (!) but I assume that is a typographical mistake.

comment Altering the sound of a guitar to match a sitar
Darn it - I think I may have just posted a duplicate question, but I do talk about the bansitar there.

There is another question that sounds like it may be a duplicate of mine: What causes this weird sitar-like sound? But it turns out to be about conquering fret-buzz on an electric guitar.
