I'm pretty sure you run the entire mix into the monitors, don't you?

I was jamming with a band a couple months ago that used them and they said they are very hard to get use to but once you do you will never wanna play a gig without them.

It would seem like it, but id want to hear myself, and i am not a music engineer and i really wouldnt control the levels because the mixer is like 50 feet away from the stage, so i think i would just run my guitar to it. I also heard about communicators for musicians in a band(in ear walkie talkies) How the hell does that work if it exists??

I ran a band and we used noise reducing (in ear) headphones and extention cables to mini mixers on stage. Cost about £50 compared to about £300.

That's what sounds checks are for. You get everything mixed so you can clearly hear all of the instruments and vocals before you play.

If you just monitor your guitar I think you'll have a hard time hearing everyone else.
