Grab your iPod/mp3, whatever, and turn the volume on full, grab your guitar. Turn on the amp, and put the volume at a respectable level. If you have one, change the pickup selector to Bridge, place headphones on strings/bridge pickup.

You should use a whammy pedal or a Wah pedal to add some twist to your music.

I think this goes in a different forum, but you can also do that with phones and such. It freaked me out the first time, because I did it on accident and i heard voice from my amp

That's not really much of a discovery, but let's pretend the majority of the population didn't know that and I'll congratulate you.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

Even more shocking evidence is that he provided two "2"s in his user name! Deux? twos? Coincidence?! Never! Indeed, he has returned!!

I already knew that. Once I was playing guitar with my MP3 player on in one ear, and the other one touched my pickups and it started playing through my amp. It makes sense. Just like your strings, the earphones are magnetic. Your pickups are magnetic and catch the sound and sends it to your amp.

Does it damage a tube amp if you just run an 1/8"->1/4" cable straight from an mp3 player to the amp?
#35
me and my friend used to do that for parties, it was pretty awesome and its cheaper than a DJ!

and my wah pedal picks up radio and tv audio when its on

My amp did that but I only had my distortion pedal put through and the radio stations it picked up were from like Poland or something. My friend and I thought it was ghosts inside my amp.

Didn't that happen in Spinal Tap?

Anyways, i knew this existed but i just didn't know how, so thank you. if you reverse wire a wah pedal and put this on the strings, its pretty cool. Too bad, you can't distort with whammy.

no
it wont hurt your amp
but it might hurt you pickups
your PICKUPS
PICK
UP
the sound
not your amp
and since they can be magnetic
your tv will buzz your pickups
your remote makes it beep
but notice
if you click your remote near your amp dumbshit
it doesnt make a sound
if you have it near your pickups
it makes noise
