What musical term does this refer to:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.........

  • $\begingroup$ are there definite number of 'O' s after N.....seems like cassette blocked ? $\endgroup$ – user2408578 Apr 2 '15 at 7:08
  • $\begingroup$ Cassette blocked is a great point. It continues with O forever. $\endgroup$ – Prem Apr 2 '15 at 7:11

    $\begingroup$ I fear your gramophone record has a scratch on the recitation of the alphabet. How distressing! $\endgroup$ – Joffan Apr 3 '15 at 0:33

I would say the answer is

Staccato

Because it sounds like

'Stuck at O'

  • $\begingroup$ Correct !!!!!!!! $\endgroup$ – Prem Apr 2 '15 at 8:29

It may be

A music-disc that went in loop. It was spelling the alphabet, when suddenly something went wrong!

Otherwise it may be

A loop preceded by a scale. The scale is made with the notes from A to N (A to G notes are the standard ones, H to N may be the next octave).

  • $\begingroup$ First attempt is on the right track, but there is a specific musical term, because it went wrong at the specific letter. Also look at the clue given in the question. Second attempt is not on track. $\endgroup$ – Prem Apr 2 '15 at 7:35
  • $\begingroup$ So this is a rebus? $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Apr 2 '15 at 8:16

So "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO........." looks like it is

stuck at the letter O.

Now, the clue says that it is better to write that as "A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O O O O O O O O O O O O . . . . . . . . ." which is

marked by or composed of disconnected parts or sounds.

Hence the musical term, as per Definition, is :

Staccato
