What the heck does 'fermenta' mean? I've seen it on some tabs, its like the top half of a circle with a dot underneath it. I cant find a meaning for it anywhere, can someone tell me what it does?
Oh **** I gotta do vibrato

It's a fermata.

The note that it is above is to be held for that note duration plus half, OR (more commonly perhaps) at the conductor's/performer's discretion. So if there was one at the end of the song, you would hold that note basically until you felt like stopping.
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.

its actually fermata. it means you hold the note a little bit longer than the note tells you to



Ah, you must have just missed my post.

Watch the conductor.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

Oh, now i know. I said 'fermenta' 'cause thats what it said on the powertab application, where i found it. Is the powertab incorrect to say fermenta. If it was, i would've thought somebody would have changed it by now

I've never heard it called a fermenta. I highly doubt anyone else has , either.

It's fermata. I just saw that like 5 minutes ago in powertab. It's spelled wrong there. But that's okay, all is forgiven, beacause powertab rocks.
