well you put a volume knob to zero, play a note/chord, then slowly turn the volume up on the guitar to make a 'violin' effect.

yes, let me set it all out,

Violining-
Violining is when you play a note/chord while the volume is at 0 or very low, and then turn up the volume to get a smooth long note, this is a Violining effect.
To get this effect you must make sure the note is long and played loudly so it will last for the desired period that you wish the "Violin" effect to last for.

Truss rod adjusts the warp of the neck...

moshing is pretty much pushing... and body surfing...

a lot of the nu-metal kids like to jump around... but its not acceptable by metal standards... hardcore kids like to "hardcore dance" which is not moshing... its only "exhibiting extreme homosexual tendencies"

Truss rod
Truss rod is a device to stabilize and adjust profile of guitar neck. Usually it is a steel rod that runs inside the neck and has a bolt that can be used to change the profile.

Truss rod is required for instruments with steel (high tension) strings. Without truss rods, softer wooden neck would gradually bend beyond repair due to applied high tension. Such device is not needed on guitar with lower tension strings, such as nylon strings on classical guitars.


Moshing-

Moshing is a type of dance characterized by jumping around and or pushing others to loud punk, hardcore, and heavy metal music. Moshing is popular with many, especially young, fans. Moshing is also gaining popularity in the Rap and Breakcore (a genre of extreme electronic dance music) scenes.

Moshing is typically done in a mosh pit or circle pit. Originally this was just a group of people typically directly in front of the stage who were engaged in this form of dancing. It is now more frequent that there are mosh or circle pits throughout the entire audience.

what makes a humbucker so great?

Humbuckers

Humbuckers get their name because they cancel out a large proportion of the hum (they "buck the hum"), since they consist of two standard single-coil magnetic pickups, usually side by side, with opposing electric and magnetic polarity. This wiring is sometimes mistakenly referred to as being wired "out of phase". Signals that radiate into both coils with equal amplitude tend to cancel each other out when they travel through both coils.

There is also a type of humbucker called motherbucker.


Single Coils

The classic single-coil tone is crispy, bright, and clear, as opposed to the "fatter", darker sound of a humbucker. Classic examples of single-coil "twang" include "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, "Brown Sugar" by The Rolling Stones, and "All Along the Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix.

Single coils have the tendency to produce more feedback and noise than humbuckers. This capability has been used to great effect by guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix.

cheers for those,
SkipperTripper please ask for a definition, not "what makes a humbucker sound so good"
this isnt for questions but for definitions, hence it being a "Dictionary"

Not that there's anything wrong with this definition, I just want to revise it and add more detail.

Divebomb-
The act of pushing the whammy bar all the way down to the guitar's body while playing a note/chord and releasing it right away. This is usually done through a guitar w/ a floyd rose tremolo but can be emulated through a whammy pedal. Divebombs usually occur during guitar solos.

Slash Chords

A slash chord is when you change the bass note of the chord. In your case, C/D would mean a C Chord with a D as the bass note.

Overdrive -

In the field of rock music, overdriven is a term used for an electric guitar amplifier when turned up, usually deliberately, past its maximum possible output, to the point where distortion (clipping) is clearly audible in the output signal. This distortion may range from a slight added "edge" with some increase in sustain, up to a thick fuzzy sound whose tonality is almost unrecognisable as that of the input signal.

Many modern guitar amplifiers have a preamp stage which can be made to distort heavily, while the final output volume can be controlled by changing the gain on the later stage(s) of amplification. The distorted sound from an overdriven electric guitar amplifier is usually much more acceptable to the ear than the distortion which most other modern audio amplifiers would create.

Suspended Chords-

A suspended chord is a chord in which the third is replaced or accompanied by either a fourth or a major second, although the fourth is far more common.

Diminished chords -

Generally speaking, a diminished chord is a chord which has a diminished fifth in it. More specifically, it is a three-note chord consisting of a minor third and diminished fifth above the root - if built on C, a diminished chord would have a C, an E flat and a G flat. The interval between the upper two notes is also a minor third - thus, the chord consists of two minor thirds stacked on top of one another. It resembles a minor triad with a lowered (or diminished) fifth.

Augmented Chords-

In general, an augmented chord is any chord which contains an augmented interval. An augmented sixth chord, for instance, has an augmented sixth between the highest and lowest notes. More specifically, the augmented chord is the three-note chord consisting of a major third and augmented fifth above the root - if the root is C, the augmented chord consists of the notes C, E and G sharp. It can also be thought of as two major thirds stacked on top of one another, and thus resembles a major chord with a raised fifth. This particular chord is also known as the augmented triad.
