There are a lot of techniques to break the “tyrany of four” worth experimenting with.
Odd time signatures.
Change time signatures.
Add a 1, 2 or 3 measure “tag” at the end of a verse or chorus.
Odd length intro, bridge or chorus.
Use the same 4x repeat, but construct a 3 (or 5 or 6) measure phrase.
Lengthen a section by half (ie, 1 1/2 verse.
I have used all of these techniques at some time or another, sometimes in combination. Often quite by accident, as I tend to write in a very “stream of consciousness” way.
One reason the “tyrany of four” is so prevalent is that it is natural. We gravitate towards even, symmetrical patterns. They just “feel right.”
Oh, yeah. Stretching AFTER a workout is even more important than before.

That’s pretty cool.
Neither one of those interfaces is anywhere near the upper crust. Either one will get you good results.
There are so many worthwhile options available it all boils down to personal preference.
As far as what else you might need, it depends on what you want to do.

“Many Years ago I heard some renaissance musicians play a song that was really close live, they explained it was very similar to STH….”
The chord progression is at least that old, if not older.
Sibelius is aimed at “serious” composers. Not rock guitar players.
Plus, it’s from Avid. The people who bring you ProFools, the “industry standard” DAW that with every new release excitedly announces “innovative new features” that every other DAW on the market had 10 years ago.
👍 on the video from JHS on the Bheringer pedals.
I got the tuner & noise gate pedals based on this video.
I really admire this guy’s honesty; he runs a company making high end boutique pedals and comes out publicly saying that these $25 pedals are worth getting.

It’s folk songs, so it’s not like it really matters. There is often 70 bazillion versions of them, all radically different.
I’d say work out arrangements for yourself however they are easy to play for you. Or challenging. Whatever floats your boat.
Yikes! I’ll take hurricanes over wildfire any day.
Easily 2/3 of Ted Nugent’s back catalog.
