Are friends Electric?

Published by Eltham College on Wednesday 7th of December 2022

Dr Davies delivered a most entertaining and informative presentation to the Year 9 Athenaeum this week on the subject of the electric guitar, the playing of which has been a lifelong passion.

He brought along his guitar (and amplifier) which enabled the students not only to see how the guitar looked, felt and operated, but more importantly to hear it in action. Whilst playing a series of blues related riffs the students experience the different effects that the use of various pick ups and amp settings were able to generate, from feedback to crisp disco it was all there.

However being part of the scholarship programme there was plenty of the evolution of the electric guitar and the science behind its operation. A most memorable session.
