And yes, I did consider an electromagnetic field in place of electric, but that doesn't wash either.
Sorry to hear your machine is broken, but you should call your local Maytag repairman. It does wash. The problem isn't with the reality. Only with your ability to recognize it.
It's definitely an electromagnetic field. I tried to be kind earlier, when I alluded to that as a question and simply plant the seed, hoping you'd take the hint. But you seem focused on diverting with the electrostatic red herring.
I remain firm - the intensity of any such field that could possibly affect a capacitor's operation would be so large that many/most/all other nearby components would also be affected. Such a disruption would not be small, it would be of a size that no one could abide by it.
The em field is NOT affecting the capacitor's 'operation' it's acting upon the conductors.
It's already been proven that the outer foil of a capacitor is more easily influenced by em fields than the inner foil (much like the way the outer braid of of a shielded cable it more easily influenced than the inner conductor).
Will the other components be affected by the same em fields? Absolutely. But to suggest that making a minor improvement in one area (when it's absolutely free and only involves a component that's already needed in the circuit) shouldn't be done, is just plain silly.
Well at the MOMENT April 2020 i wouldnt buy a guitar from any where.. (do read the NEWS) i would suggest getting a cheap guitar and see how you enjoy it and get along with it. that way if you give it up after a week or run out of time!! (If possible at the moment) not great loss as for learning online .. lot of the greats learnt on their own .. There are some books I think Bert Weedon is class as a great to follow But you get people like Hendrix who plays upside down! things like that
the only suggest with CHEAP guitars NO ENCORE! (last one i brought was PAPER not wood)
