I was jamming with my friend in the usual spot I'm set up(my house, he was set up in the same room but at a different wall socket), and when I touched his guitar strings I felt a weak shock(A tingling sensation), and was wondering if anyone could potentially offer an explanation for this? We've jammed together a few times at his place but this never happened before.

YOU CROSSED BEAMS!

either that or one of you has slight grounding issues.

Or maybe just static shock.

Do you have birthmarks that, when put together, create an awesome band name?

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

Crabcore?

^^^Ok, ok. I agree. Sometimes.

Anyways... I'm not much of an electrician, but perhaps if you were on the same circuit, you could be completing the circuit? Or someone's grounding wire came loose. At least, as far as my knowledge goes.

I decided to plug my bass into the wall directly rather than through a power bar, but I'm unsure if that will rectify the problem unless it was running over the max load.
Hi.

Its probably just static. Unless it continues to happen dont worry. Or, if your house is rather old IT could have a grounding issue. I played in this old chaple once and every time our lips touched a mike it would shock us. This doesnt usually happen there but it did when the huge pa system was set up. So it could be an overload too.... hmm...
#14
is the shock a steady tingling or just a split second shock?

A steady tingling
Hi.
#16
there was a previous thread on electric shocks, without the idiotic comments ( ). I posted in it i think...

Now that the lame(but somewhat funny) comments are out of the way, perhaps some real responses could be posted :l.
