So the other day i was listening to my music, while air guitaring at the same time. My brother saw me and started laughing at me and was like, "Why do you air guitar, now that you have a real guitar?" and I didnt really have an answer so i punched him in the face

But then later i was thinking, i usually air guitar because something is too hard for me to play or my guitar is not near. Im not like those people who know nothing about air guitar and pretend to hold the fretboard and strum.

And we all know that air guitaring on stage is unforgiveable.

So the question, UG, is do you air guitar?

Or air bass or drums whatever

Well, do you think air is natural? I do. So, to me, air guitar is natural.

I love air guitar. I really get a kick out of seeing someone wailing away in a car. Oblivious to the fact that dozens of other people are laughing at them.

There are these 2 penguins at the Central Park Zoo who air guitar..

And if animals do it, it must be natural.

When I'm listening to thrash, which I usually do, I get this thing where I strum the rhythm parts with my right hand. It's fun, with fast triplets and stuff.

The Bible says

And Jesus said unto the people, and know thee that I am the greatest of all air guitarists for I rocketh harder than thou. And then he like totally let rip with this sick air guitar solo and he was like "**** yeah" and we were like "DUUUDE!" And he was all like "I know man I'm freakin Jesus"

I air guitar a lot when I listen to music with my friends. I only do it when I actually know how to play the song, though.

But its funner to do when you dont know the song cuz then you can just wiggle your fingers around randomly (well if they shred or something that is)

I like to do it to songs i know too though

my little brother air guitars. i don't mind it, don't annoy me or anything but he air guitars to a song that he can actually play on a real guitar, but when hes airing it he just shakes his fingers violently... even if its a mellow song, lol.

i'm a bassist and i find it kinda hard to air bass... just tapping my fingers against my thigh :S

I read somewhere that guitar players are more likely to air drum

which is exactly what I do

yeah, me too.
playing air guitar seems unnatural to me, and when I try I strive to play as "realistic" as possible, which is a hassle.

I air everything.

Also, when I listen to classical, I air direct the music.

Well, you don't have to know how to play guitar, but you have to air guitar in a way that matches up with the song well.

I have no clue about any aspect of this contest. It would be fun to watch some clips though.

Yup, some people sing to songs they get into...I end up air guitarring the solo if i'm at a desk or something and it's a really good song.
