So, I was listening to a Power Tab midi of Hit The Floor by Linkin Park, and leaned into my computer to type, with my guitar still on, and suddenly, the sound of the midi came through my amp.

If it makes a difference, I'm running on heavy gain from a Fender M-80 amp, with an Ibanez GRX20L with Powersound 1 and Powersound 2 pickups.

Has this happened to anyone before?
Is this dangerous for my guitar or my amp?
Is this dangerous for my computer?

without a more complete description of what happened i'd say the oscillating frequencies of what was being played through your pc speakers matched the resonant frequencies of your strings. ie, your pc speakers were loud enough to drive your strings. i don't think its dangerous.

Well it's not unheard of.
Chances are it's like what Gazaa said. It's happened to me as well. I've gotten my voice into my pickups.

But yeah Paul Gilbert would even scream into his pickups. So yeah people experiment with it as well.

My EMGs pickup a local radio station somtimes, its very strange (its a country station too so it kind of sucks). High powered pickups just do weird things, its nothing to be worried about.
