Brazilian Leopard Wood-An alternative wood for the back and sides of a classical guitar.
Break-provides a solo instrumentalist, usually the leader of a jazz or Blue Grass group, to play without the rest of the ensemble
Break-In Time-The classical guitar consists of approximately 40 major wooden parts, all glued together to hold their idle state. If the instrument vibrates regularly at set frequencies, these glue joints will open in such a way that the top, back and sides will eventually begin to vibrate more freely with notable improvements in tone, response, dynamic range, and volume. An average break-in time for a new guitar can take one to two years. For a professional, one to two months with huge improvements in weeks!
Breakdance-originating from the hip-hop movement, it consists of jerky rhythmic patterns, smooth linear robot-like movements, syncopation and helicopter spins with the dancer on the floor on his or her back

Bridge-Through the saddle, a wood bridge transfers the vibrating energy of the string to the top of the guitar.
Bridge Plate-The Bridge Plate adds strength to the top under the bridge area. The straight wood grain runs perpendicular to the top of the guitar.
Bridge Saddle-Typically made of bone, the saddle transfers the vibrating energy of the string to the top of the guitar. The bridge saddle is not glued to the bridge, but rather held in place by the tension of the strings. The height of the saddle is determined by the guitars neck angle, therefore it is not measured upon itself but rather measured for an optimal string height at at the twelfth fret. Traditionally the bass strings are higher than the trebles, but crossover players are setting their heights more equal.
Bridge Saddle Height-The height of the string at the twelfth fret measured from the top of the fret to the bottom of the string as adjusted at the bridge saddle.
Bridge Tie Block-The area on a classical guitar bridge where the strings are tied. Often a strong cosmetic veneer is added. This adds character to the bridge, but also prevents the strings from marring into the bridge.

Broken In-Anyone who has owned a new guitar will attest that it requires a certain amount of time to improve its tone. A small amount is attributed to the aging of the wood, but the greatest single event contributing to improved tone of an instrument as it ages is its ability to learn to vibrate at frequencies that will most often be used. The classical guitar consists of approximately 40 major wooden parts, all glued together to hold their idle state. If the instrument vibrates regularly at set frequencies, these glue joints will open in such a way that the top, back and sides will eventually begin to vibrate more freely with notable improvements in tone, response, dynamic range, and volume (Sweet Spots). An average break-in time for a new guitar can take one to two years. For a professional, one to two months with huge improvements in weeks!
Broken octaves-where alternate notes are played an octave apart
Broken time-the interposition of short sections (general only a bar or two) in a contrasting time signature; unusual time signatures that can be unsettling to a less experienced player, for example 7/8 or 13/16
