ok, so i'm into basic electronics...i just made an LED switch, what should i learn next?

here are my sucky schematics!:

Dean Flying V
Franciscan Model A ClassicalGuitar
Ibanez Acoustic
Dean Acoustic Bass EABG
Mitchell Mu-70 Ukulele
Line 6 Spider III 30W
Korg Kaossilator
Yamaha Keyboard
Boss Metal Core
Fishman RareEarth Humbucker
you should have a resistor between the led and the negative terminal of the battery to prevent shorts, which is essentially what its doing now.

also, if youre looking for basic projects, i would recommend scanning through instructables.com. if youre looking for knowledge, i would also recommend the book 'Basic Electronics Theory: with projects & experiments' by Delton T Horn.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Wiring LEDs for whatever reason you see fit:
Lower resistor value=brighter. Don't go lower than 1k. 2k2 is probably too much. 10 LEDs per battery is probably a good number. YMMV.

This shows it between the positive terminal and the LED.

And I would suggest the Fuzz Face Build on the First Page of the Ultimate Pedal Building Thread, you can find the link in the Essential Links Thread

I just about finished mine and the hardest part is getting the box together.
