Guitar Explanation.

If You play a guitar when it will vibrate from the strings to the nearest object around it and back. Then it would go to your eardrum and go forward and backward. Also when you make a noise it will make sound waves in the air which you can't really see.  If you play a low chord it will be a low pith but if you play a high pitch. So if you play a guitar it could ply high and low pitch which head to your ear molecules.

40 hour famine sleepover .

Entering my school I couldn't wait until the 40 hour famine started because we had a sleep over that point England school which is the school I go to. As I walked into the library all I saw were my friends and I was happy that this day has came. Saying goodbye to my Mum my friends all came and gave me a hug like they have never seen me in ages.

When everyone got here we all gathered together and talked about what is going to be happening tonight and what we are allowed to do and what where not. This is my first time ever coming to 40 hour famine sleepover before and I'm happy I signed up.

 The first thing that we did was we played a game that the famine leaders made up for us and we also found out what team colour we were in and I was in team blue.

How To Make A Guitar .

Rubber bands
Cardboard box

Step 1: You have to cut a hole in the middle of a square box.

Step 2: Then you put about 5-6 holes on to each side so it looks like thisScreenshot from 2014-06-03 14:44:00.png
Step 3:Then paint the body of the guitar I desired.This is easiest to do before you’ve strung it, as paint will change the sound and elasticity of the rubber bands.

Step 4:Place the knotted dowel into the body of the guitar and feed the rubber bands up through the string holes. The dowel will hold the rubber bands securely in place.

Step 5:Stretch each string across the central guitar hole and into the corresponding string hole on the other side.

Step 6:Place another dowel inside the body of the guitar and tie the loose string ends to it. Do this one string at a time for maximum accessibility. Be sure to make each string slightly looser than you would ideally like, as you will be tightening them later. If desired, make each string a different length to achieve different notes.

Step 7:Glue the last two dowels to the front of either side of the central guitar hole beneath the strings. Place the first dowel underneath the middle of the strings, slide it to one end, and glue it in place to lift that end of the strings; repeat on the other side. When you’re done, the strings will not only be lifted off the face of the guitar, but also have a tighter sound.

Step 8:Find a long piece of material that will readily attach to the body of the guitar.For example, this may be a piece of wood, length of PVC pipe, or cardboard tube, depending on how sturdy you’d like the end result to be.
  • To make cardboard tubing more solid, use several tubes. Slice all but one of them down the middle lengthwise, insert them inside one another, and glue them together.
  • If using PVC pipe, try to find some with a threaded end. This will make it easier to attach to the body of the guitar (see Step 4).

Step 9: Paint the neck if desired. Note that if the neck is a different material than the body, the painted result might not match (even if you use the same paint).

Step 10:Cut a neck hole in the body of the guitar if necessary.

Step 11:Attach the neck to the body of the guitar. The simplest way to do this is with a strong glue. If using PVC pipe, first screw a PVC ring onto the threaded end, then stick the threaded end through the hole you cut in Step 3, and then tightly screw another ring (or cap) onto the pipe, trapping the top wall of the guitar body between the two rings. Note that this will only work if the body of the guitar is a sturdy material and the hole is very snug.

Step 12: Now you're done, go give your new guitar some strumming!
