#beginquote# As stated before, the term "measure" is the same as "bar" in most other English speaking countries (possibly non-English, too). Did a little research and could find nothing that gave a reason the US uses the term rather than "bar". Just our quirky little of doing things different, I suppose. The only thing I can surmise is that a bar has length (literally) and a length is a measurement, so................................... we started calling it a measure. Sorry I could not add more to the discussion besides more confusion. #endquote#
