Dude, i know the perfect thing, i did a demonstrative speech on guitar in my speech class, i showed the class how to string and tune a guitar, only because when i go over to peoples houses, most of them own a guitar, only because there parents bought it for them, and its so out of tune and so mistreated that it killed me

so i showed them what happens when a string break by snipping the string, then re strung it, then tuned it, then used a rag to clean off the fingerprints, got an A plus yo!

EDIT: I still have a copy of the speech if you need a reference.

Cool but I only have 6 minutes to do whatever I am going to do and my friend said he was going to show how to tune a guitar. (Im not that fast at restringing so to give the speech and do it in under 6 minutes I might not make it)

Whoops, didn't see the demonstrating part. Well, you could show the evolution of the guitar if you have access to several different types.

Well, i think mine had to be five minutes, you only have to do one string, and you dont even have to restring it, just snip on string, show them how to string it through the holes in and then tune other strings. then just wipe it down with a cloth, shouldnt be over 6 minutes

I dont think I could teach one chord for 6 minutes but mabey a song with 3 easy chords.

Maybe something to do with music theory?

Play solos in 3 different modes and talk about how it changes the feel?

Something along those lines...
tl;dr : IM BETTER THAN YOU
