A fermata is over a note or rest, a double bar, or a closing repeat
sign.  If over a note or rest, it extends the duration.  Otherwise, it
is equivalent to "fine", except that you can continue after the
section it ends, IOW use it more than once.

What could a fermata over an ordinary bar line possibly mean?  A bar
has no duration, and you usually don't end at one.  Does the piece
need a double bar?

 Any workaround

putting in a bar to mark didn't work? \bar "|"  daveA

The only technical exercises for guitar which are worthy of the
