Get out your DMM, and let's explore the simple ways to ground Strats, Teles, and Les Pauls. The good news is, there is no such thing as overgrounding.

Hello, and welcome back to Mod Garage. Today we'll take a deeper look into grounding passive guitars—and basses, of course. This subject causes a lot of confusion and endless (mostly obsolete) discussions. There's no guitar forum without at least one escalating thread about grounding.

So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
