can anyone tell me what it means when someone says 16th notes strumming? and moreover 16th notes pulloffs ?
okay do you know what a quarter note is? or a half note or whole note for that mater? if not it's time to learn some basic music theory.

its basically the duration i think? a half note is half the duration of the whole note? is that what a 16th note is half of the eighth note?
In 4/4 time measure, a quarter note would be one count, with 4 quarter notes per measure. The number at the top in the time signature is the amount of counts in the measure, the bottom number indicates which note is worth one count > in the example of 4/4 time measure, there would be four quarter notes.

Assuming you play something in which the quarter note is worth one beat (so any x/4 time measurement), an eight note would be half a beat, so two eight notes make one count. A sixteenth note is half of that, so it would be a quarter of one beat - four sixteenth notes in a x/4 time measurement should therefore be one count.

Count along 1, 2, 3, 4 with the beat. That's quarter notes. Then count 1 and 2 and 3 and 4. That's eighth notes. Now count 1 e and a 2 e and a 3 e and a 4 e and a... that's sixteenth notes.
