Paul started by showing us a number of different acoustic and electric guitars.

He explained the different parts of each guitar and demonstrated how they sound, because of their different wooden construction, the number of strings, either gut or steel, the effect of a capo, amplification and how the strings were played using finger picking or strumming with a hard or soft plectrum.

He played various well known numbers like: ‘In the early morning rain’, ‘Scarborough Fair’, ‘You’ve got a friend’, ‘Good night Irene’, ‘California dreaming’ and Starry, Starry night’.
We sang along with many of them and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning going down memory lane.
