First Woman World Air Guitar Champion

I thought this was a fun bit of news, despite the fact that air guitar championships have very little to do with actually playing guitar.  The World Air Guitar Championships got their first ever female winner this year.  Aline Westphal (The Devil’s Niece), a young German woman, won, followed in second place by a Chicago man named Justin ‘Nordic Thunder’ Howard, and another woman Veronica ‘Like Ever Gin’ Mullerova from Czech in third place.

Things I noticed watching videos from the competition.  1) Air guitars are played really low, usually somewhere around the groin area.  2) You can play the neck of an air guitar with either hand, frequently switching off. 3) You have to have a catchy nickname to play air guitar. 4) Maybe I would like the Foo Fighters better if Dave Grohl played an air guitar.
