    Post That squiggly line in piano

    does anyone know what that squiggly line right beside a chord in piano, uh the one where you have to roll the chord right beside it (kinda like a gliss. but with specific notes)

    ...everyone knows what it does but no one knows what it's called ...

    i'll try to get a picture of it if no one knows what i'm talking about

    I'm dying to know what it's called too! You mean it's when you play all the notes of a chord one right after another really fast? Guitar players do it too, not just piano

    Is this what you're talking about?

    I always thought it was just called... broken chords... or something... but I suppose the actual line has a name too...

    Broken chords? I don't think so.

    So, the squiggely line is called a rolled chord? That doesn't sound right to me.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's called a rolled chord. I bet it has some italian name too, but I haven't heard of it.

    No, an arpeggio is a broken chord and it's notated in separate notes.
