Ava Mendoza plays Bar 355 Sunday, January 13 with her trio Unnatural Ways.

The electric guitar-few things sound more exciting or alive in the world of music. But how does it work? The Science in the City team visit with Bay Area based electric guitarists Ava Mendoza and Henry Kaiser, plus Subway Guitars very own Fat Dog, to shred away some mysteries of this beloved instrument.
