I'm using this NPN switch to turn on and off a clean guitar signal (as part of a much bigger circuit not seen.) The base is connected to the switch, which gives the base 9V through a 1 megaohm resistor. The idea is that when the switch is on it will allow the clean signal from the collector to the emitter.
LTspice does not like this part of the circuit at all, as it takes an extremely long time to simulate, if it doesn't crash. I have a feeling it's a terrible little circuit, but I'm not sure why. Is this circuit acceptable, or is there something I'm missing?
