Here is a visual example of a fretboard of a six-string guitar, and the notes each fret produces (source: http://www.daddydoodle.com/)

that is to put your finger between two frets and strike the string

look at "rock guitar for dummies", its a book. that should help out. a lot and but a tabs book of something that you want to play(fav. band) so you know you can actually learn something and get the feel of the guitar. practice a lot, its amazing of the things that can be acomplished with a little effort.

and one more thing as a beginner you shouldnt worry about pickups yet, learn more about the guitar. dont buy anything too exspensive like humbuckers when your not really sure abouit much on a guitar.

i know these are ways of plying a tune but how exactly


Vibrato is a slight change in pitch of a note. Like when you bend a note, except with vibrato it's generally small bend up and down on whatever note you are currently fretting. Vibrato is applied to give character to notes, used predominately in solos. Often confused with tremolo which is a fluctuation in volume, not pitch and why the whammy bar is called a tremolo arm is beyond me. Also tremolo picking is a term used to describe super fast alternate picking.

Check out EVH's Eruption and you'll hear most of the techniques you want to know.

There's natural harmonics, pinched harmonics and artifical harmonics.

They're basically overtones produced when a string is played in a certain way.

Check out Nothing Else Matters by Metallica for clean Natural Harmonics.
Zakk Wylde for pinched harmonics and Pantera for squealing natural harmonics.
