Possibly the most influential instrument of our time, the air guitar has inspired millions to pick up rock. An air guitar is the imaginary instrument used when pretending to play guitar. Play by using an exaggerated strumming motion with loud singing or lip-syncing. Air guitar is used in the imaginary simulation of loud electric guitar music like rock and heavy metal. You can play the air guitar with little prior knowledge or skill.

If you are still following this, great you are on your way of become a legendary air guitar player. Here are some tips and warning.

  • Remember, the higher the note, the lower your hand.
  • If you have a cool haircut shake your hair around! (or even if you don't)
  • Don't put your strumming hand down too low, no real guitar player will play with the guitar down to their knees, except Fieldy from Korn.
  • Pick an appropriate song, I have seen way too many people try to play air guitar to "That's what I like about you" and "barbara ann"
  • And finally, don't care what other people think.
  • Too much head-banging can cause lightheadedness and nausea.
  • While playing air guitar, it is easy to lose control of your senses. Be careful of objects around you so that you don't crash into them or knock them over.
  • If you play near other people, they might think you're crazy!

With your new found skill, go out there and impress the shit outta the girl or guy that you have be trying like shit to impress….
