Hi. I bought an electric guitar 2 years ago and I've enjoyed learning to play punk and thrash metal. One thing has been bugging me though, I hear about amps all the time but what do they actually do?

They take the signal from your guitar and turn it into sound. That sound is then sent out through a speaker.

Please don't tell me you've been playing your electric as is without plugging into anything for 2 years.

Didn't u know? Sound comes outta ur ass, and the way ur ass is shaped affects the tone. So go ahead and buy a new ass.

To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.

Anyways, yeah it just amplifies the signal from the vibration of your strings that the pickup magnets pick up and sent through the output jack and into the amp which amplifies it into an actual note(s).

I saw someone playing a guitar with a hole in it and it wasn't connected to anything and it sounded nice.
