Explain how it works. Play some notes, some chord and some harmonics.

Explain how to play the guitar as if the audience had just unwrapped the Squier that was under the Christmas tree.

After you've played some basic riffs, chords, and harmonics, end the presentation saying "In closing, if you practice a lot, and really start rocking, you could do THIS..." and go into a MONSTROUS, FACEMELTING, ORGASM-INDUCING, MINDBLOWING SOLO to end it.

The audience may not survive the solo, but that's okay; it's just a bunch of kids and teachers anyways.
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

well if its a demonstration, demonstrate how the guitar works and how to play it. maybe give a brief history of the guitar? i dunno if that would be good or not for that but it might give some insight to the guitar. explain maybe some of the related instruments, the styles of music it can play, its note range, how harmonics work, some techniques, maybe different tunings and ways of playing as in slide, tapping, slaping, etc...

do you have to demonstrate everything or can you have a video too? because if you can you can put a video together of different styles and techniques to give perspective on the range of the guitar.
