Exactly! Most schematics I can't even order the parts for, much less complete the circuit to see how it sounds. Some of that shit looks expensive too. I wonder how much the "Most Expensive Chip Available" costs.

I just assumed it was either "Magic Smoke" or "Warm Front." But honestly, I'm not sure. Could be "Hire someone to open and close switch real fast."

Even though I'm sacriligious, I love the grounding the circuit in Holy Water concept. That's a mod worth trying. Although isn't having different grounds usually a problem? Or do we assume that the other grounds in the circuit are to the same place? See how I got all bollocksed up on these things?

Funny.
Along the same lines is the new infographic from GuitarSquid:

Schematics look like sheet music to me. You do need to know how to play them.

I can't do much with a sheet of music either. I think I have a symbol coding issue in my brain. I hadn't thought about this being affected by it, but now it seems obvious. I wish I could "sight read" a schemo.
