Mini Amplifier

Description: This is a product of me trying to turn lemons into lemonade. My mom kept asking me if I wanted to take guitar lessons. The first dozen or so times I said no very firmly, but sometime after that I was worn down enough that I said that I would love to. Ten weeks of torture followed. I learned that from my guitar teacher that he worked with computers back in the day and his son was in a career involving them. I realized I might have a happier relationship with him if I appealed to that time long ago, so I built this mini amplifier for my guitar. It is extremely simple, with two battery packs, a single amp chip, and a potentiometer to change the volume. Sadly this creation did nothing to satiate my teachers blood lust and after two more weeks of finger slashing gore I quit for good.
