FIRST. I know Google. I've been there. All night. I'm interested in doing a couple of projects: an USB-powered snake light with multiple LEDs and (realistically flickering) LED tea lights (even preferably rechargeable, if possible). I'll admit, I'm a complete noob when it comes to putting electronics together. I've been putting together a couple of electrical guitar effect pedals but that's easy. All you need to know is how to solder, which I do. Is there anyone who can point me to good sites or even know how to make LEDS flicker or connect LEDs to an USB cable?
