physical crosstalk from capacitors

(from this article series link in another thread:

I thought this bit was interesting as applied to guitar amps.

You would be surprised at how much crosstalk can be introduced between two adjacent electrolytic capacitors, or even two mylar/polyester capacitors.

So for mixers and stereos something generally to be reduced and avoided, but for guitar amps (my understanding is) interactions can be part of the sound.
