Okay I've not posted this in the amp or guitar thread as it's not do with PLAYING music as such, more the playing of others music.
Okay so a few minutes ago i had my laptop plugged into the input port of my amp (better speaker) and was using it to listen to music, it suddenly went a bit quiet so i unplugged it and went to plug my guitar in to check it out, as soon as i plugged my guitar lead in the music came back on, without the lead from my laptop to my amp being plugged in anywhere, if i touch both leads it comes on very loudly but i only touch the guitar lead and leave the other one hanging over the edge of my bed so it isn't touched me in anyway shape or form, i still get the music but quietly.
Why does this happen?

it's picking up soundwaves from the computer or something. you must have nice cables.



agreed.

its probably like how some amps pick up radio stations. just with your laptop

Not nice cables actually, one is a £8.99 guitar lead and the other is a double ended 3.55mm jack cable someone gave me with an extender on the end so it'll match my amp socket, no reason to stop it, just wondering why it happens cos it's weird lol

Is the laptop playing it without speakers? :s

EDIT; I'm confused because I can't quite get what you mean btw, any chance of a better worded explanation?

Except for all the cables he mentioned, YOURE RIGHT

I know technically the cables aren't connecting the two, but it sounds like they're still playing an integral part in this whole set-up, without them there'd be nothing

Okay, here is my set up.
I have my laptop, my amplifier, a 3.55mm double ended lead and a 3m guitar lead.
I was originally playing music from the laptop through the amp using an adapter to let the lead work. Everything went quiet from the amp so i unplugged the cable and plugged in my guitar lead.
Note now that the lead connected to the laptop is not plugged into ANYTHING else, it is completely free. When my guitar lead is plugged in I can hear music through my amp but very quietly and the quality is bad, if i turn my amp up full and my EQ up fully then you can hear it better, if i grab the end of my guitar lead (metal bit that usually goes into your guitar) it gets better, if i then hold the free end of the 3.55mm lead in my other hand i get perfect quality, i can understand holding both because it would make the connection, but none of the other bits make sense.

It would be in that they don't actually have to be connected, but if i don't connect them the quality is dreadful.

THIS HAPPENED TO ME AND MY CORD AND AMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my amp was playing a news talkshow, i was like wtf, but at the same time it was cool. the next day nothing mappened

It's just picking it up from the computer.

If I take the headphones from my iPod and hold it up the pickups, it'll play throught the amp. Gets pretty nasty if you do it with distortion.
#16
aaaaaah sweet, i'm sure i'll find a use for this eventually lol
NOTE: I just realised what you both said, my guitar is in no way involved, it is lying across the room with no power.
