There are no set guidelines, but I use riff to describe a rhythm passage and lick to describe a lead passage.

Riff-"Walk This Way"
Lick-The part of "Sweet Child" where the solo gets a little nastier.

good answer dude, and Nautaflcl...go find a book with licks in it you dumb fu-k. Lady Madona, Purple Haze, Pretty Woman...all these are licks. A lick is a musical phrase that is universally accepted by the masses as being the sh-t. Lick this you dumb sh-t!

semitones are 1 fret between each note. like on the low E string, the first fret is F. the second is the semitone, F#, then the third is G. two frets are tones, while 1 fret is a semitone.

Feedback -
The hum you get when a string vibrates for a while, the note stops and then you get this OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOO sound that lasts forever until you touch the string. This sound is typically achived by standing right in front of your amplifier (with your guitar facing it) with high gain. This sound can be a very useful tool once you figure it all out, but can be very annoying to listeners who hear this screaching noise for a long time. I'm not TOO sure on how the science of this works, but I can guess that the note goes out of your amp, and then your pickups pickup its own noise, and this happens repeatedly; ultimately giving you a humming sound.


its actualy in technical terms when the sound coming from your amp loops throught the guitar and comes out the amp again

the answer you got for semitones is right on...one fret is equal to one half-step or one semitone. "flat" refers to lowering a note one semitone..C to B (which is Cb enharmonically-just another name the note goes by). "sharp" is raising a note one semitone..C to C# (or Db). the best definition i can give for music theory is that it is the study of the roles notes, intervals, scales, key sigs, time sigs, etc. play in composing music, and explains why some things work well together & some don't.

you're doing yourself a huge favor if you learn theory. it has cleared up so many things i didn't understand previously.
