Build the chord from the top down (Low E - high E), assuming your strumming in that direction. Your finger placement is a split second ahead of your strumming. So you're actually starting to play the...

Thanks for the advice. That's pretty much what I expected. I'll grab a set of monitors.
I'll probably end up getting an amp at some point in the future as well.

GT-100, amp or monitors?

Whats the advantage of using an actual amp (w/ the 4 cable method) with the GT-100, or any FX processor, rather than a pair of nice stereo monitors? ...besides the volume, obviously.

I think it prevents the output hot from floating during the brief switching moment when the wiper isn't connected to either poles. It should suppress any noise from the amp when the switch occurs.

Yeah the pots need to be 25k. But my guess is yes it'll probably work. If you connect it backwards it will not ruin or damage the pickup. It just won't work, so flip the connection around.
