en strof på åtta takter

Det kan bero på sammanhanget, men om det gäller att avsluta ett musikstycke så är översättningen av an eight-bar en stof på åtta takter/åtta takter.
Ex. Lägg bara till åtta takter i slutet så blir det bra.

Example sentence(s):
  • An eight bar blues is a typical blues chord progression, taking eight 4/4 bars to the verse. "Heartbreak Hotel", "How Long Blues", "Trouble in Mind", "Ain't Nobody's Business", "Cherry Red", and "Get a Haircut" are all eight-bar blues standards

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  larserik: Håller med, men jag är osäker på "strof". Det ger associationer till text, inte musik. SAOB säger "två eller flera versrader". Föreslår helt enkelt "lägg till åtta takter på slutet" eller "som avslutning".

  -> Tack för kommentar! Definitionen bör vara "en fras på åtta takter". I det aktuella sammanhanget räcker det med "åtta takter" som jag visat i mitt exempel. Definitionen bör dock vara längre.
