  1. 1. E.S.C.C.P Practical work of English Teacher : Ema Coll Students : Vila Navarro María Paz, Nakasone Melanie , Olabarrieta Martina , Yohena Goya Jessica Paula. Delivery Date :July 3rd 3º4ª morning shift -2009-
  2. 2. <ul><li>Ghost in the Guitar is an exciting ghost story, written </li></ul><ul><li>specially for Penguin Readers by Paul Shipton. </li></ul><ul><li>Teenagers Katy and Tom are in a pop group, and </li></ul><ul><li>they dream of being stars. While they work in their ordinary </li></ul><ul><li>day-to-day jobs, their minds are on their songs and the </li></ul><ul><li>success they may one day have. But when Tom buys a new </li></ul><ul><li>guitar, he becomes more than a dreamer: he becomes </li></ul><ul><li>ambitious in a new, frightening way. It is as if the guitar itself </li></ul><ul><li>has changed him. Worried by his cold and angry moods, </li></ul><ul><li>Katy tries to find out what is wrong. When she finds out the </li></ul><ul><li>sad and terrifying truth about the guitar’s previous owner, </li></ul><ul><li>she knows that there are other hands still playing its </li></ul><ul><li>strings, and Tom must be saved from the forces that </li></ul><ul><li>possess him. </li></ul>Summary
  3. 3. <ul><li>I always dreamed being a pop star, seeing all my fans shouting “Katy!”. I played the electric piano and wrote some songs to. My band was called Steel City. The other persons in the band were Aruna (she played the bass guitar and sang), Danny (he was our drummer) and Tom (he was our guitarrist and my boyfriend too). He usually met me after work. </li></ul><ul><li>One day we played in King’s Arms and I was feeling nervous. After the gig, we went to a room at the back of the pub. Minutes later, we heard in the radio that we were going to play in the Battle of the Bands because Tom sent a cassette with our songs. I was very happy, so I jumped up to give Tom a big kiss but I didn’t see his guitar and my leg hit it. When we saw it, it was broken. </li></ul>Chapter 1: The Accident
  4. 4. <ul><li>I went home that night and asked my sister, Rachel, for some money to buy a new guitar. </li></ul><ul><li>The next day, Tom and me run to the music shop (he was very happy). When we arrived there we saw a lot of guitars, but there were very expensive. So the shop owner brought us a very old and dirty guitar from the back of the shop. But when Tom hold the guitar, said with a cold smile: ‘I want this guitar, Katy’. </li></ul><ul><li>That night, before work, I wrote a slow and sad song called ‘A last Goodbye’. In my heart I was sure that this song was about Tom but I couldn’t understand why. </li></ul>Chapter 2: The New Guitar
  5. 5. <ul><li>The next day, we planned to meet at Danny’s house and practice that evening. But when I went out of work, Tom wasn’t there. I waited twenty minutes, becaming more and more worried. As Tom didn’t come, I took the bus to Danny’s house. And when I arrived there, Tom was not there. Danny and Aruna were very angry. Later, he came but he didn’t even say sorry. We started to play and we realized that Tom was strange and much better. But something was wrong, he seemed so different that night. When we finished playing, he suddenly said that we were terrible. And Danny asked him to lend him his guitar but Tom shouted to him: ‘Never touch my guitar, do you understand?’. </li></ul><ul><li>Half an hour later, Tom took me home. While we were in the car, I gave him my new song but he didn’t say anything and pushed the paper into his shirt’s pocket. Then, he started driving very very fast. </li></ul><ul><li>When we reached to my house, Tom didn’t say good night. ‘Something very strange is happening’ I thought. And it all started when Tom bought that guitar. </li></ul>Chapter 3: Trouble in the Band
  6. 6. <ul><li>I couldn’t stop thinking about why Tom could play so well and why was he so angry. I called Aruna and she said that I should go to his house and find what is happening with Tom. </li></ul><ul><li>I walk to Tom’s house, as Aruna told me. He wasn’t there but his mother let me in. She told me that he plays the guitar all day and  she sent him to work because he didn’t go. I went up stairs to Tom’s bedroom to have a look of the guitar. I can’t explain it, but the guitar seemed to watch me. I moved with my fingers across the guitar strings but there was no sound. I run out of the room, down stairs while I started to hear a noise from upstairs. It was the soft sound of a guitar. </li></ul><ul><li>An hour later, I went back to the music shop and talked to the shop owner. He told me that the guitar was from a woman who didn’t want that guitar in her house. And he gave me her address. </li></ul><ul><li>It was dark when I arrived to the woman’s house. Her name was Linda Carter. When I started talking about the guitar, she looked nervously and told me: ‘My husband has finally stopped thinking about that guitar. He’s stopped having bad dreams about it’. Then she said me that she was going to tell me more about it but I must promised I’ll never come back. She was afraid. </li></ul>Chapter 4: The Promise
  7. 7. <ul><li>LINNDA CARTER TOLD ME THAT SOMETHING HAPPENED TWENTY YEARS AGO. HER BOYFRIEND PHIL PLAYED THE BASS GUITAR IN A BAND CALLED CIRCLE OF GOLD. THEY WERE VERY GOOD BECAUSE OF THE GUITARRIST, DAVID RYAN. BUT HE USED TO SHOUT THEM AFTER ALL THEIR GIGS. THE 10TH JULY, 1980, WAS A BIG COMPETITION. AFTER THE CONCERT, DAVID SCREAMED AT THE BAND AND, WHILE HE DROVE AWAY ALONE, HE HAD A CAR CRASH. THE GUITAR DIDN’T BREAK IN THE CRASH SO PHIL TOOK IT. HE LIVED IN THE PAST BECAUSE OF THE GUITAR AND HE HAD BAD DREAMS FOR YEARS.  SOMETIMES, LINDA COULD HEAR THAT GUITAR SO SHE SOLD IT. </li></ul><ul><li>  SOME MINUTES LATER, I TOOK THE BUS AND WENT TO MY HOUSE. I TOLD RACHEL THE STORY AND SHE SAID THAT SHE WAS GOING TO GO TO OUR NEXT PRACTICE. </li></ul><ul><li>In WEDNESDAY, WE WENT TO DANNY’S HOUSE TO THE PRACTICE AND TOM WAS LATE AGAIN. HIS FACE WAS WHITE, HIS HAIR WAS LONG AND DIRTY AND HIS CLOTHES WERE DIFFERENT TOO. WE STARTED TO PLAY, WHEN THE TELEPHONE RANG. IT WAS TOM’S BOSS. THEN, TOM QUIT HIS JOB AND HE SAID: ‘CIRCLE OF GOLD ARE GOING TO BE BIG’. </li></ul>CHAPTER 5: LINDA CARTER’S STORY
  8. 8. CHAPTER 6: AN OLD NEWSPAPER <ul><li>Tom left first at the end of our practice and he drove away very fast. I started talking to Rachel and she said me ‘Didn’t you hear what Tom said on the telephone to his boss? “Circle of Gold are going to be big”’. My heart was going faster and faster. </li></ul><ul><li>I met Rachel outside the library. We asked the librarian the newspaper of the eleveth of July, 1980. We started looking at it and at the top it said ‘Great Night At Music Competition’. There were some photographs and in one of them, it was Phil Carter. Circle of Gold didn’t win that night, but they were second or third and that wasn’t enought for David Ryan. I felt suddenly afraid. David Ryan was looking straight into the camera with cold grey eyes. His hair was long and he was wearing a white T-shirt, a pair of jeans and a old jacket. Int his hands was that guitar. He looked exactly like Tom. </li></ul><ul><li>While I was on the bus home, I thought that David Ryan had came back as a ghost through the guitar. Rachel said ‘I think that Tom Webster and the ghost of David Ryan are fighting inside one person. They probably don’t understand what’s happening’. I started thinking that all the things that happened to David Ryan, were happening to Tom. So that mean that Tom was going to have a car crash and I had to change things! The only way that the ghost of David Ryan would dissapear was if Steel City won the competition. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Chapter 7: The Battle of the Bands The competition started. Lisa Jones (she was very famous in our area!) introduce the judges and all the bands. The first one were OK, but I didn’t listen much. The second one made a lot of mistakes! And the third band, ‘The Passengers’ played very exciting songs. As I listened them, I started worrying. We listened to three more bands and then it was time for us. The crowd clapped politely as we walked out on to the stage. We started our first song and the crowd loved it. At the end of our first song there was a big cheer. Our second song was even better, but Tom didn’t seem happy. We left the stage. Finally the last band played their last song. Then, Lisa said that the judges couldn’t take a decision and that they were between Steel City and The Passengers, so we had to play one more song. I was afraid to play again. Suddenly, I turned around and there was Rachel. She was with Phil Carter and he started telling me about that night twenty years ago. He told me that the judges were between Circle of Gold and another band, too. Before they played, David Ryan shouted at them and finally he played the last song alone and won. But he wasn’t happy enought, that’s why he drove away alone and had that terrible accident. Then, I thought that we had to lose to save Tom.
  10. 10. While I was thinking a new plan, I saw that Tom was walking out on the stage alone and he plugged in his guitar. There were Aruna and Danny standing behing the stage. I ran to them quickly. They told me that Tom said he had a new plan: to play the last song alone. The history was repeating itself. When Tom started to sing, I knew that the song was my new one, ‘A Last Goodbye’. The crowd loved him. I tried not to look at the crowd. I moved behing Tom and pushed him hard. He reached out to the microphone, and fell with it to the floor. I pulled the guitar away from him. I held the guitar over my head and I brought it down hard. There was a terrible sound as it hit the floor. Finally I pushed it into one of the big speakers on the stage. The guitar gave a final scream. The guitar was gone. The crowd were silent. Tom was standing again now. He took a step towards me. I stepped back nervously, but he just smiled and took off his dark glasses. I wasn’t looking at Tom, I was looking at the ghost of David Ryan. He seemed to understand what was happening. Then he said ‘I’m never going to be a big star, am I?’. I couldn’t lie to him ‘No’. He told me that my song was very beautiful. I took a step towards him and said ‘Goodbye, David’. The guitarrist smiled one last time. Then his head fell to his chest and a fez seconds later his eyes opened again. I knew that David Ryan was gone. There was Tom again! Of course, Steel City didn’t win that night. Now, I’m still working in the factory, but I’m going to leave at the end of the summer. I’ve decided to go to college. Of course, I still play in Steel City. The band is doing well. We haven’t made our first CD yet, but we will one day. Chapter 8: The Last Goodbye
