The Worst Air Guitarist Ever...

Last night Megan and I were sitting at the dining room table at our respective computers listening to random songs on my iTunes. The classic Van Halen guitar solo Eruption came up, so I busted out the air guitar (which actually looks more like an air ukulele). As I sensed her extreme embarrassment, I knew I had my next video. You'd think air guitar would be hard to be bad at, but I think you'll agree I make being bad at it look quite easy. If you want to see people who have mastered the air guitar, check out this doc.

You have to get more high up on the neck. But your hair was perfect!

Actually, speaking as a guitar player with over 30 years of experience, I noticed a pronounced use of the air whammy bar at precisely the right spot, followed by a right hand multi-fingered picking technique at the right spot also - which, if I'm not mistaken, Mr. Van Halen employed quite frequently when he produced his 'dweedlee-dee' guitar solo parts (see Frank Zappa's autobiography for dweedlee-dee guitar reference). All in all, it's not like you totally stunk up the joint, but it was a tiny assed guitar, that's fer damned sure. Your facial expressions were considerably off, too. Of course, now that I play electric upright bass, I am fucking king of the ‘bass player face’, which kind of looks like the face you make when something smells funky in your kitchen garbage can. Try that look while you're doing air guitar and your girlfriend won't be able to keep her hands off you - guaranteed.

I went and watched something called the "Air Sex Championships" this year, and in many ways it wasn't even half as fulfilling as this video.

I think you need a Hello Kitty backpack on the front and you'll be much better.

To tell the truth, it sort of looked like you were having an epileptic fit. Or maybe just making some of those Tourette's Syndrome-type jerking tics?

But I'll give you a five for the facial expressions because they reminded me of Bill from that most excellent group, Wild Stallions.

I thought the "air guitar" made a perfect cover for playing with your right nipple.

You brush up on your fret work and you're golden!

It's easy for me to say those kind of things as I am a non-musical clod myself. I can't even play the radio well.

At one point I just thought you had really itchy nipples. At another I thought, "So THAT is what a dancing Thalidomide looks like!"

Air Guitar Nation was a fun movie full of odd people. I like the Asian American guy who won though. :)

At about :03 I grabbed my lighter, thrust it over my head, and lit it.

I wish you were my neighbor. My life would be so much better!! :-)
