I don't have the required score in any of these tags to suggest any tag synonyms, but all three seem to be expressing the exact same idea. What do you guys think?

    These are all newly created tags the newest being only a week old. The better question may be do we need these tags. – Dom Jun 3 at 2:10

    I believe one of them would be more than enough – Shevliaskovic Jun 3 at 8:49

    @Shevliaskovic Are you saying we actually don't need any of them? – Richard Jun 3 at 16:59

    @Richard no. We've had questions tagged with these, so we do. But one is enough, so 3>enough :P – Shevliaskovic Jun 3 at 17:39

    Some anacruces are longer than one bar, so 'pickup bar' isn't a synonym. And if the anacrucis is, say, one beat, then pickup bar isn't the same. Bar and measure are. – Tim Jun 4 at 6:23

    @Tim But all pickups are also anacruses, correct? So we could have [anacrusis] as one tag and the others as synonyms included in the broader category. To me a question about a pickup measure itself and not about a more general concept of anacrusis is still served perfectly well with an [anacrusis] tag and we don't need the granularity of a separate tag for each possible type and aspect of anacrusis. – Todd Wilcox Jun 6 at 19:18
  • @ToddWilcox - yes, pickup = anacrucis. But the OP said 'pickup bar'. Am I being too picky?! – Tim Jun 7 at 15:45

Perhaps all of these terms are too specific to warrant being tags?

Questions relating to these subjects could be tagged notation, or phrasing, or perhaps meter, depending on the specific question.
