Building a stage snake/box

Hi guys! I checked past posts, but don't think I found what I need. I'm building a 1/4" t0 1/4" mono stage snake/box. Here's what I crudely did. I took 2 guitar cables and cut them in half. Stripped the live and the ground and attached to 4 mono jacks I bought at radio shack. 1 to ground the other to what would be hot. My soldering iron and skills are both crappy so I used a few solderless crimp(?) terminals I had lying around. So to test I ran one end to a practice amp then plugged into the jack...I get audio, but I have a nasty buzz. Sounds like grounding. I'm not sure how to better ground this? I am a n00b...I get it, but I gotta start somewhere thanks so much in advance!!
