So for my speech class I have to do an informative presentation. Basically I inform the audience about something. I can't choose a topic that's too controversial or too technical.

So for my topic I have chosen...YOU GUESSED IT! The electric guitar. More specifically the solid body electric. What I planned to do is just explain some history about it and then the parts of the guitar and what they do.

Now I already did a presentation on the instrument in another class (Jazz/pop music) with completely different people, months ago. However, again I don't plan on bringing my actual guitar, just pictures in a Power Point presentation (That I will recycle). To make me less of a douche I plan on being funny (I can pull off the funnies...Trust me. No Pokemon involved)

So Ug, will I look like a douche?
Btw if any classmates ask if I play, I'll just say no and I'll probably never see these people again next semester...

go for it
i bet most people dont know exactly how electric guitars work anyway, you'll probably do them some good
▲I had a friend once
►He took some acid
▼Now he thinks he's a fire engine

Why hide the fact that you play guitar? Just because you are passionate about your instrument does not make you a douche.
#9
I'd suggest that you bring a guitar. Definately more opportunities to show the diffrent parts and their interaction.

You could plug the guitar, put an earbud on a pickup, and and some wah to the song, to show how pickups amplifies the sound.

why would you say you dont play?

I don't know man. I mean I've never really mentioned anything guitar related to these people here. I just want the easy A in something I have some knowledge about. Plus I have my "Trump card" !

If people aren't interested, they aren't interested. So to the majority, unless you're really captivating (judging by your insecurity, I'd say it's likely) you'll probably look like a douche, yes.

It'd be way cooler if you brought a guitar with you - even if it was only some cheap pice o' junk. You know, whenever people see my guitar they want to hold it - just for fun, pretending to be a rockstar or something.

But I don't see how doing a guitar oriented presentation will make you look like a douche, even without having a guitar with you.

Trust me when I say I can pull off the funnies. Even my teacher said I'm really captivating (after several speeches). To answer why I won't bring in my guitar is because I all have is this for an amp:



I also only 5-7 minutes to do this.

I did that for speech class in high school, but I brought my guitar and played. I did it it to add some comedy to an otherwise bland presentation.

I did a presentation on my guitar years ago and everyone loved it..

You'll be fine

If you say no to both of these questions, you won't look like a douche, even if you play the intro of "Through the Fire and Flames".
