    u can connect ur guitar to ur pc too

    use softwares like guitar fx box to replace what a processor would do

    dude how do u expect to play the electric guitar if u have no source of transforming the electric pulses amplifier is that thing from where the sound ie guitar sound will come from

    processor is that device which can or cannot include a distortion pedal which allows u to have good distortion n various effects like wah wah + some include drums sounds n other stuffs

    if u just buy an electric n plug it to ur pc ie with no g fx box software u can get a clean electric guitar sound type

    hmmmmmm others will enlighten u better

    perhaps what i said is rubbish coz i am revising right now n bye

    crash course in electric guitar........go to a guitar shop......the thing with a stick and a body like u with horns is an electric has six strings...or maybe even has pickups....wich can be humbuckers or single coils......there is a hole in the guitar body....u will get a wire wid amp is a box wid several knobs on it for controls like volume,bass,treble,contour and maybe even some effects like overdrive and stuff..........u will notice that the amp also has a whole like the one on the guitar body.....plug the wire into the tow wholes.....plug the amp into an electrical point...switch it on.......and waala.....u hav sound.....
    a processor is used for making sounds like wah wah....try saying wah wah wid ur mouth.......the sound will be sumwat like the proccesor will give it has other effects like delay....reverb,etc
