The closer my tele gets to the floor the louder my amp gives off feedback..

What could this be? Bad grounding in my guitar? I usally sit on a chair to play if im just messing around and i got up to adjust the volume on one of my amps amd noticed the closer my tele gets to the floor the louder a feedback noise comes through my amps.

I don't think it's got anything to do with the wiring of your guitar mate. You get feedback when your guitar strings are resonated by the sound of your amp, which generates a signal through the pickups, which is amplified (surprisingly) by the amp, which resonates the strings... and so on.

I'd guess that you lean forward to tweak your amp, which puts the guitar closer to the speaker and increases the effect. Otherwise, if your amp is sitting on the floor, you could be putting the guitar more directly in the line of sound. If you want to get rid of it, I'd recommend turning down the gain / volume on the amp, or kill the volume on the guitar before you lean in.

It's absolutely nothing to do with a guitar or amp problem.
Is your floor anything but carpet?

Typical plywood floor with carpet, i do use the room above the garage so the technical aspects of the room are not as perfect as the rest of the house.
