Is there a way that I can add an analog VU meter to a simple circuit that just has an audio input and speaker? Answered

Is there a way that I can add an analog VU meter (the one with the PIN that jumps up and down) to a simple circuit that just has an audio input and speaker? It would go like this: Audio input -> VU meter -> Speaker (See image below)

Can anybody please help me? I think it would be a cool feature to the project I am making but I don't have any electrical engineering background at all and am pretty lost with this stuff....

Thanks

an instructable to ask a question seems very weird to me

You can just connect the VU meter in parallel with the speaker.  You may have to adjust the sensitivity of the meter for it to be accurate.
