Don't. You look like a jackass.

Does anybody under 35 even think playing a guitar (real or air) is cool?   Pretty much every popular song I've heard recently consists of synths and techno beats composed on a computer.  No guitars to be found.

I like how the article spells "Thrustin' Beaver"  as "Thurstin" throughout.

I cant wait to get my vintage Randy Rhoads air guitar back from the shop. I had it intonated and new EMGs put in it. Its gonna sound sweet through my hot rodded Marshall JCM 900 air stack.

The only thing dumber looking than "air guitar" players are "air drummers".

If you don't have the dedication and or talent to learn to play a real instrument, then forget about it altogether.

Whyte Beever

is the name of my 80's Glam Tribute Band. I usually play my vintage lime green Jackson Dinky for those shows.

Yes, but men and women that play guitars actually get laid. The people making the synth beats? Not so much.

I know it's a cliche, but the "play guitar if you want to get laid" thing is REAL. Hell, you don't even have to be in a band. If you ARE in a band and play the guitar? You will be getting laid almost at will, assuming you're not truly repulsive. And even then, you'll do okay.

and the air drummer has to tell them when to play them.

I wanna be an "air vocalist", but I don't have the talent.  I have to settle for being an "air roadie".

They donate to charities. They can air guitar all they want with no shame.

But if you're wont to frollicking, you're better off with a flute, in the woods, because you might be a wood nymph.

Yes. Musicians, or people who appreciate music instead of sparkly glittery forgettable fluff.

Not really related but f*ck it: Guitar players who realize mid-solo that they're holding a giant slug.

I played the piano until I was in sixth grade.  Then I saw that chicks dig guys who play guitar (this was the 80s) so I learned that.  I don't think I ever got laid because I could play though.  Probably because I'm ugly,

I'm repulsive.  I also played metal, which is not sensitive or attract many good looking chicks.  Skanky tattoo'd chicks yeah, but thats not my bag baby.
