    I am curious how you guys feel about people playing air guitar. Personally, it annoys me. I'm not really sure why. Especially if the person doing it is not a guitar player. How do you guys feel?

    As a guitarist I take it as a compliment - I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a guitarist?

    I often play air guitar my damn self, especially if it's a song I know how to play IRL. I catch myself subconsciously fingering the notes as I listen.

    As for other people doing it, I tend not to crap on other people's fun. If it isn't effecting me, why should I care?

    I'm not as bothered by it as by people who "dance" and never move their feet.

    I'm selling this beauty. I'm willing to negotiate on the price.

    I know the color is not for everyone, but it plays like butter.:thumb:

    If you fart whilst playing does it muddy the sound?

    Aww man, I'm not interested in playing butter. :(
    Would you have anything that plays like a Guild Starfire instead?

    My thoughts on people playing air guitar;

    * Everybody should play air guitar, for a brief second or two, every time they hear a killer, bad ass rock song.
    That's socially acceptable.

    * Doing it for extended periods of time, whilst making that O face, is right out of bounds.

    * 'Air Guitar' competitions, (televised events where people get up and play air guitar for an entire 'song', and get scored for how wonderfully and dramatically they ape the motions of playing guitar), are horrible, vulgar affairs.
    Surely the work of the devil.
    Should be outlawed.

    Anyway, I'm gonna shut up now.

    :(

    I use X-tra light gauge strings on my Custom Shop air geetar. I play in an Air-Metal band and I pick hard. They're guaranteed not to BRAKE.:)

    I prefer a medium gauge. They sound more "atmospheric" to me.
