Like Guitar Break.... surely it doesn't mean break as in snap. Is it like quick notes in succession? And shred....
Shred is the quick notes in succession.
So what does it mean when they say break?
A pause, perhaps?
I think it means a part in the song where its focused on guitar, but not really a solo, more a melody or an interlude thing.
Break is traditionally considered a rest. Generally it means the entire band rest together and puts a lot of emphasis on the break.
Thats true but what he means is like a "guitar break" where maybe the majority of the band is doing nothing and the guitar is soloing. Like the guitar solo in A Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin.
