I just found out that if you take a TV remote and aim it at your pickups it will make weird noises when you press the buttons. If you keep holing it it starts clicking. Sorry if this is widely known but I just figured it out and thought I'd share.

No I'm not Jesus. I would aspire to be though. I think under circumstances he would let you pay less if you needed to.

if you hold an analogue watch to your pickups you get a 60bmp metronome

if you put anything electronic near your pickups ie: cell phone, tv, it will make some buzzing sounds and popping sounds

I remember at band practice once, I was sitting on the couch with my bass lying across me, and I leaned over it and screamed, and you could kinda hear what I was screaming coming from the amp.

I've tried to reproduce the effect many times in the passed 3 years and have been unsuccessful =\

if you put an ipod headphone up to a pickup your music will play out of it

There is a video of the guy from the band Modest Mouse, Isaac Brock, screaming into his guitar pickups as loud as he can at a concert and it comes out of his amp.

Really? That's bitchin! Since I haven't been in a band I haven't had a chance to crank the volume to really try it.
THanks, I'll have to check that video out

paul gilbert screams through his pickps at the end of the track "get out of my yard"

also, if you put the strings against your throat and speak or make noises, they will come out of your amp.

you gotta have high gain on to scream through your pickups and they hafta be relatively high output usually.

putting ipod headphones to the pickups are bad for them because they de-magnetize. Or so I've heard.
