Air Guitar Nation

“Make Air, Not War”.

I had been trying to make it to the San Francisco regional Air Guitar Championship for the past two years, but had failed. I will fail no longer. This even must be planned around.

Air Guitar Nation is the type of documentary that, at times, seems like it might be a mockumentary. It takes itself really seriously.

The documentary follows the first US Air Guitar Championship, pitting two rivals against eachother- C-Diddy and Bjorn Turoque. It continues with the World Air Guitar Championship in Finland. And in between, there’s a whole lotta air guitar.

So, we’ve all done it, right? Air guitar is fun. Well, these guys take it to a whole new level. It’s a ‘serious’ sport, with olympic style scoring, some star judges (Tom Morello!), and some intricate, well thought out performances.

So, do you have what it takes? Check this site for your region’s competition. Or if you think you’re really good, check out the World Championship site.

On a related note- I hope the Guitar Hero Championship that I’m going to in a couple of weeks is this entertaining.
