There are twelve notes in western music, C,D,E,F,G,A, and B. All of these (except E and B)have "Sharps" which are the notes in between them, I.E, C# (# means sharp) is halfway between C and D

And octave is the same note, but on whole set of notes up, so we go
C
C#
D
D#
E
F
F#
G
G#
A
A#
B
c < One octave higher than the first note

difficult to explain, though simple in practice. MrToucan pretty much got it, but you really should read some articles on theory. plenty of good ones here at UG!

an octave is the 8th degree of the tonic.

almost everything is based off the 12-note traditional western chromatic scale and how the notes are arranged gives us other scales. you can get major, minor, and all sorts of each.

start by studying the traditional major scale and the intervals between the notes.

Try reading this: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/columns/music_theory/basics_nobody_tells_you.html
Then this: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/columns/music_theory/intervals.html
A lot of good stuff in those 2 columns. First one really helped me understand the basics and once you get that down its relatively easy to learn most of the other stuff

An octave is the doubling of frequency of a note. All the other notes are arranged between the two notes.

EG, A = 440 Hz, an A an octave above =880Hz
The number and value of the notes between depend on the musical system being used.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

In Equal Temperament, the multiple is the 12th root of 2. For example, to determine the pitch of the Bb 1/2 step above A440, multiply 440 by 1.05946309 to arrive at a value of 466.1637596. Continue this process chromatically upward until you reach the octave A880.
