Symmetry breaking -- Claiming directionality of cables
Palavras chave/keywords: guitar, cable, amplifier
Symmetry breaking describes a phenomenon where (infinitesimally) small fluctuations acting on a system which is crossing a critical point decide the system's fate, by determining which branch of a cable is plugged into the guitar. To an outside observer unaware of this, the choice will appear arbitrary. This process is called symmetry "breaking", because such transitions usually bring the system from a symmetric state into one definite state. Symmetry breaking is supposed to play a major role in guitar playing[clarification needed].
