I had a good laugh

Take to a guitar repairman, there is a short in it. He'll be able to fix it.

Or...were you playing Fallout Boy? Because then it's obvious what happened. Your Low E String committed suicide.

ya, it happened to me once... my guitar wasnt grounded, and i stepped near a mic, and tried to sing and....

BAM my lip got shocked, and it was bleeding... it kinda sucked

you could repair it yourself(if you follow a wiring manuel, and you have decent soldering skills) or you could send it to a repairman who probably knows waht hes doing, but for a price...

That happens to me when I play in my sewing room. It shocks my arm and everything else exept my hands. When I play anywhere else it doesnt happen.

I've had it too but try plugging your amp in elsewhere. maybe your socket is overloaded

your guitar is probably not grounded


Your guitar doesn't provide a large enough AC current, there's no way in hell it could shock you if it isn't grounded. You'll hear a ton of noise through the amp though. If you're getting shocked, most likely your amp isn't grounded or it's shorting; either the socket it's plugged into or the circuitry itself could be the culprit.

Warning: Note that this problem is very serious and could result in death. I advise you get it checked out and resolved before playing through the amplifier again
