#beginquote# An accent either looks like this (>) or this (^). The line you are asking about is called a tenuto and is essentially the opposite of an accent. Where an accent is played with emphasis (>) and occasionally with emphasis and separation (^), the tenuto (-) is to be played full length and with no emphasis. It is similar to a legato tongue but you may or may not slur a tenuto depending on the style of the music. I hope this helps. Chad Criswell Band Director Southeast Polk Comm.
