The major thing that you will need in this project is a microphone ( any kind ) as you can see i got mine from an old rock band microphone from a broken wii

Well it works and it works very well and you can amplify anything you could use it as a microphone or any thing you want, and it has suprisingly good sound qualaty

Nope. You got lucky. Your Wii/Rockband mic must be a dynamic mic, meaning it generates a signal without needing external power. A magnet and a coil. This is good.

A lot of cheap microphones use an electret capsule. These produce no signal unless they are powered, and a guitar amp won't provide the low voltage bias needed to run them, so you now will have to add a battery, a resistor, a DC blocking capacitor. Otherwise, no signal.

Stick with dynamic mics for ease, else look up powering electret mics -- it's only 2 components and a battery, but they are essential!
Genius! Never had an elec guitar. My kid doesn't even play Wii anymore. I just need an amp and guitar then learn how to play.
