Physics and the Electric Guitar


We were delighted to welcome to school, for our third Orangery Lecture of this term, Nicholas Weaver, headmaster of Ipswich school.  Mr Weaver delivered a most interesting lecture on the “Physics of the Electric Guitar”.  The lecture was both informative and entertaining for the pupils, as Mr Weaver illustrated his talk on his own guitar.  How a guitar sounds is something we all take for granted, so to find out how and why it sounds the way it does was fantastic!
