Can someone point me to some guitar music that contains a turn. I am assuming this is used somewhere in guitar music,but I don't really understand how it's used. I am not referring to a "Turnaround".

Look at the web page Ornamental Turns in Piano Music to see the turn symbols and what is meant by it written out in full as well as being explained.

 

To me the most obvious turn used in guitar music is in Spanish guitar music. In the key of Am, a turn symbol over a B would mean you play B-C-B-A-B. Do this by playing the 2nd string open, B, then hammering on to C at the 1st fret, pulling off back to the B, playing A at the 2nd fret on the 3rd string and then finishing by playing the original B again.
