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")
this is also very much informative...GeoffB wrote: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.
Just for reference (no pun intended) the dead link can still be found through the Internet Archive:Mod note: Unfortunately the above link is no longer valid, as the site has closed.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.
