Help w/ materials!

hi, i’m fairly new to blender, and im a retard when it comes to materials. My question: i am going to make a model of a silver/brass (not sure yet :o ) trumpet, and i would like to know how to make it all reflecty, just like polished silver/brass. it would also b helpful to know what each setting involved in making this kind of material does :stuck_out_tongue: .

please ignore the previous post. ive just realized that i’ve posted it on the wrong forum! :expressionless:
