Show them some intersesting sounding scales like the phlygian scales and other exotic scales, also talk about the history of what your demonstrating.

if you can do some spanish style guitar stuff thats always a crowd pleaser....and ya if your doing a speech definatly talk about the history of the instrument..and interesting facts and people over the ages and stuff

yeah that sounds good, but i dont think the whole exotic scales will work since she gives us one day to right speech and i only know the e minor pentatonic, but i love spanish style, thats probly what ill do

You could do a simple but popular song - maybe something folksy? Or a sampling of some famous riffs. Tears in Heaven, intro to Wish You Were Here, a verse from Times They Are A Changing? I dunno, those would all be simple and recognizable. You could show them the e-minor pentatonic too, if thats all you know. You could probably take up a minute or so going through the parts of the guitar. Point out the tuning gears, the neck, the nut, the bridge, the saddle, bridge pins, headstock, body, soundhole, frets, fretmarkers, etc. Comment on the wood used - particularly back, sides, and top - and it's effect on tone.
