How do you stop string noise from sliding from chord to chord on guitar? Also whats a synth pad and how do I do it?

ummmm what? have you tried lifting your fingers and putting them down on the new chord? would've thought that was pretty obvious.

A pad is just a kind of synthesizer, and I'm not sure what you mean by do it. It's like asking what's a guitar and how do I do it.

A pad is a subtle sound with long attack and release, usually synthesized.

It's widely used on motion pictures and dance songs,
in the last case with a compressor with a low treshold using the bass drum as sidechain.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

String noise not the notes

yes I know, if you actually lift your fingers off the string then there won't be any string noise because you're not touching the strings.

String noise is a fact of life with acoustic guitars. I think it can really add to the character of an acoustic recording and isn't something that necessarily needs to be avoided.

It's certainly not something I'd attempt to fix once tracked...careful use of multiband EQ or de-essing can help but it's not worth it IMHO.

A good temporary fix (if you're doing a recording or whatever) is to put a little talcum powder on your fingers.
