That sounds like a turn: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn_%28music%29#Turn

Also described here: http://www.dolmetsch.com/musictheory23.htm (scroll down to "turns").

The latter is quite a useful page, as is http://www.dolmetsch.com/musicalsymbols.htm though neither is specifically for guitar.

Thanks, Geoff. It is indeed a 'turn'.

I spent ages trying to find it! I should have posted sooner.

Thanks, again. The other page is also very useful.

PS

Googling "Turn", I found this PDF on guitar ornamentation - it's very comprehensive and exhaustive ('exhausting' too):-

Go to http://www.classicalguitar.org/ , click on the "Free stuff" heading, then on "Ornamentation and the Guitar" (under Free Guitar eBooks")

It certainly beneficial for everyone to communicate under the same terminology, especially when there are so much pseudo jargon out there. Thanks for all taking the time

This post is probably out of date. When I tried to connect, I am getting a message that this site is no longer active.

Yes, Oracle shutdown ThinkQuest quite some time ago. However, there is much other very useful information in this thread.

Perhaps a moderator could edit the original post, noting that the ThinkQuest link is dead, but that there's other useful stuff in the thread? Might that be useful to new members who could otherwise be put off reading it because that first link is broken?

Mod note: Unfortunately the above link is no longer valid, as the site has closed. This topic has been left, however, as there are some other useful links given on the third and fourth pages.
Just for reference (no pun intended) the dead link can still be found through the Internet Archive:

http://web.archive.org/web/200705150957 ... OPNSCR.htm

So, I'm not sure if you want to update the first page with this link.

thanks for the link to music terminology and definitions very useful I needed a listing of dynamics, and tempos and are laid out in simple order thanks.

tempo and Bpm are interesting. I have done some research, and on metronome sites. Determining the speed on music is confusing at times. What is the standard or accepted in the world of music.
