    Im trying to make a goodbye gift for my friend. he loves playing the
    guitar so i figured whats better then a mini amp? so i did a bit of
    research and found the site aaroncake.net and found a plan:

    http://www.aaroncake.net/circuits/amp.htm

    i think the site gives me all the info i need, my only problem is that
    i dont know how to read the diagram. where can i learn the basic
    knoledge needed to be able to read the diagram? im also interested in
    another project on the site.

    but it looks far more complicated but still cannot read the diagram.
    if anyone could point me in the right direction i would be very
    greatful.

  3. alright. thanks
     
  4. You're better of with a complete kit rather than just a plan. Or else
    you might still be stuck in plans when the day comes that your friend
    leaves.

    Here's one for $6.95

    For a guitar, you need a preamplifier as well:

    Perhaps a basic electronics course at your local community college, as
    well -- if you're not reading schematics yet there's probably a _lot_ of
    other stuff you also need to pick up.
     
  6. thanks for the input, problem is that where i live, there arent
    community colleges. and even if they were, they wouldnt speak english.
    im going to do a lot more research and if all else fails ill just get a
    kit. thanks!

    that site was given to me. it seems to be very helpful and i think its
    everything i need to learn about it. its seems to be very basic and
    good for beginners. anyways thanks everyone for the help.

    I was afraid that would be your situation -- oh well.

    In that case keep asking -- and building kits is a good way to pick this
    stuff up.
