    I have a Sony DSC-H50 and I take it to concerts sometimes to take photos for various local bands. I'm not too familiar with the settings and would like to get some photos like this. I believe it has something to do with aperture? Not sure what setting I should be on exactly and what I need to put the number to(like ISO and Shutter Speed)

    Anything with a long exposure will work. It's hard to give exact settings without knowing the lighting in which the shot will be taken. I would just put the camera in shutter priority (Tv) and use an exposure of 1-4 seconds (the longer the exposure, the more light streaks you'll get). Adjust the ISO settings to whatever is needed to be able to get 1-4 seconds at a good aperture (high F number would be best for this).

    I'd try experimenting at home before the concert(s) to see how much light streaking is good for you.

    Long exposure with rear flash sync to freeze the guitar player.

    The technique is called "dragging the shutter" as far as I remember. It's the result of a long exposure (several seconds creating blur) and a combination of flash to freeze one moment in the image.
