A trill is simply alternating (usually quickly) between 2 notes using legato (no picking).

Example:

e----------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------
E-0h2p0h2p0h2p0h2p0h2h3p2h3p2h3p2h3h2h3h5p3h5p3h5p3h5

That's a series of 3 trills in E minor. Don't ask me why the last A's way out from the rest of the tab, it's not meant to be...

Trills are very common in classical music, composers like Hendel, Bach and Vivaldi. I mean, Fur Elise starts with a trill really, a slow one but anyway, it's the best example I could find.

If you look into ANY neoclassical at all, Yngwie for instance. Those songs would really suffer if you can't trill.

Those exercises are also good for building up strength which you need when playing legato and those nasty stringskip licks Paul G uses.
