Hello O' wise guitarists. I am considerably new to guitar playing, and i own a hobmer acoustic guitar. I've been pluckin it for about a year now, and as i was planning to move to a electric guitar, this whole recession thing happened. So wat do I do? well i discovered that my acoustic guitar had a pickup inside, so now I try to use that fact to atleast get a louder sound, if not all the effects i can gt from an electric. so here's wat i did.... I got myself an audio jack converter, and tried to plug in my computer speakers, (which hae a built in amplifier). I strum the G chord and TADA!!!! ... nothing.. I juz wana know if it is possible to get such a cheap solution working somehow, If i need preamplifiers between the pick up and the amplifiers from my computer speakers, or is it that those pickups in my guitar juz dont work..? Any comments will be very helpful.. Thanx in advance. Cheers! Akshay.
