this thread is meant to help out guys like me who havent the foggiest idea about the "technicalities" of producing music.
i have loads of music and hear most of what i have. but i dont play any anything except at times the fool :D
there are many terms that are greek and latin to me. i hope i am not the only "technical" (pun un-intended) nocive here. this thread is for me and for them.
i propose that the "question-answer" pattern be followed in this thread. giving "funda's" are also welcome, where some expert explains what a certain term / jargon means, on his own, without anyone asking.
my first questions:-
1) what exactly is meant by "shreading" ??
2) whats a "stacatto with balls" performance on the drums ??
3) dont laugh.... how to identify the strings? i mean someone told me that iron maiden uses only 3 chords.... which three do they use and which three do they not? if that guy hadn't told me, i wouldnt ever have known...help
