In music notation, a fetura is a pair of slanted lines through the topmost line of a staff. It may follow a fermata and indicates that the note should come to an abrupt and (in the case of a band or orchestra) unified stop.

On the staff, it looks something like this:


                               _
    /\                        /.\          //              
---| /------------------------------------//---------------
   |/                                    //                
---/---------------------------O--------------------------
  /|                          |
