and all of a sudden i hear that Black Eyed Peas song that's all over the radio. My guitar is plugged in and everything but all i hear is that song, and a bunch of static. Then when the song is over i hear the radio DJ's talking. I try messing with the knobs but all they do is either add or reduce to the high amounts of static i already hear. I'm still confused.

Edit: I now hear some commercials, probably from the same station that was playing the Black Eyed Peas song. I'm guessing this is 96.5, Power 96 here in miami, they tend to play that song alot lately. But now i also hear like...talk radio in the background. Someone talking in spanish but i can barely make out what they say coz Power 96 is much louder. Also, the static goes down ALOT when i put my hand on the metal things that hold the handle onto the amp.

ask the amp if it will meet you half way?

(yeah a similar joke has already been done, but I thought I'd add a twist to it.)

Because he doesn't know what it is, so he doesn't know where to post it. As far as he knows, it could be the guitar, the pick-ups, interference from anywhere in the room, his amp, his cable.... anything, really.

and he is supposed to know that how? obviously why he posted in here..
Running away from this earth.
May it pass away in the beautiful flames that it was created for.
Because when tomorrow fails to come,
today is just not the same.
Inflamed earth.
Roses.
In this hope.
For all i care set it all ablaze.

It's not the amp, its my guitar. I've figured that much out. I unplugged my guitar from the amp and all the static and the radio stopped, it was just silent. And either way, its not a tube amp.

Anyone know how to stop this? I really want to play but i can't hear my guitar over the radio.

Sounds like a grounding problem. Check your ground wires in both your amp and your guitar.

You could say that. But i lowered it, switched to a clean channel, didn't change much. Just caused variations in the static.

Probably been said, but any length of wire/cable can pick up radio frequencies. Your jack lead must be doing so.

I used to have a really cheaply made lead that used to pick up radio interference.

Or, as someone else said, it could be a grounding problem.

Also, there is a special glaze applied to your guitar after the finish that stops it from picking up radio frequency. This could be worn out.

Nope, nothing but i did get police transmissions.

But anyway, i walked to my friend's house and asked to borrow one of his leads. Maybe mine just wore out or something, because that fixed the problem.

If i have my phone in my pocket, and I'm playing guitar, i sometimes pick up other peoples conversations in the house. And if my phone rings, it plays through my guitar and out the amp I think that's different though >.>

one time i picked up a religious radio channel talking about satan. i'm pretty sure i just started playing as heavy as possible (which really isn' t much to be honest) and headbanging.
