Many terms are common in music and the fine arts. Refers to the word bar. Talk about confident strokes in the drawing, the shading...

Of course, touches on the music - not that pencil stroke. The so-called methods of extraction of musical sound - voice or instrument. The main strokes is staccato (staccato), that is jerky and Legato (legato) - connected.

Sign staccato
Sign Legato

Some of the common tools bar portamento (portamento) - smooth and long, but the sounds are not connected.

Performers on stringed instruments know a lot of special touches, such as detache - version each note a separate movement of the bow, col legno (Col Legno,) the shaft of the bow on the string, the Martel - detache with stops and others.

Have your own special touches, and the brass, and percussion instruments.
