Electric Guitar


  • Where did the guitar come from? Who put it there? Who does it belong to?
  • Is this electric guitar playing music? Can it?
  • Are the birds flying away from or towards the guitar?
  • What is the man doing? What’s he holding? (A plectrum.)
  • Why is the plectrum so large? Where did he get it from?
  • Does he know how to play the guitar?
  • What do you think he’s going to do? What song might he play?
  • What song would you play?
  • Which of these two songs best fits this picture? Why? Feeling Good vs. Changes (Youtube links – play audio only – share the lyrics with children).
  • Do all power lines have an instrument at the end?
  • Think of other examples where instruments could be found in unexpected places.
