Air Guitar Championship
« on: September 08, 2007, 06:54:35 PM »
Firstly, there is a competition for air guitar.  Secondly, this guy has won it two years running.  Thank you, Finland.  (Bonus points for the stage costume.)

And the YouTube video to accompany it.  ;)

You must.  I'm thinking a nice AC/DC tune for you.

Yeah, I'm not so keen on lip-syncing as anyone who knows the lyrics can do that, but air guitar is another thing... to really pull it off, you have to have some knowledge of how to play an actual guitar.  And to mimic the best guitarists' moves is pretty entertaining.  Goofy, but entertaining.

Nah, you got to air guitar to something from Judas Priest or Iron Maiden! Now that's guitar work!  Up the irons!

"You Shook Me All Night Long". Plenty of opportunity for stage antics as well as a killer guitar solo.

I was thinking "Thunderstruck" but that'll do as well.  I would definitely like to see some Van Halen in there, especially some tapping. No bar chords allowed!
