Hello guys,

I'm new to this forum and I'm new to the music world aswell.
I'm currently learning how to play guitar all by myself, couldn't afford that much of a guitar so I had to buy a fender squier bullet strat which isn't quite good for what I want (metallica style thrash) but I guess that it does the deal since I'm still a beginner and I can't even play anything from metallica yet.

Alright, let me get to the subject.
I've been playing for two weeks and since I have to move a lot everyday I always take the guitar, cable and amp with me. I curl up the cable and throw it in the same bag as the guitar and carry the amp on the other hand.
Few days ago, the sound started failing when I strummed the strings, I touched the cable some times and all was fine again.
Today, when I was turning everything up, no sound would come out of the amp, which makes me think the problem comes out from the cable, but the cable only has 2 weeks, is it normal?
I've tried connecting the cable to amp and tapping the other end with my finger and no sound would come.. So, I should buy another cable right?

Bad cable, bad connectors at guitar or amp. All are probably an easy fix with a soldering iron. Test a different cable first, and eliminate possibilities one by one.
