Last year, I rented the documentary Air Guitar Nation from Netflix.
It’s a fantastic movie about the Air Guitar Championships, and it is far, far better than I expected it to be. The spirit of fake plastic rock is strong in this one. If you’re looking for pointers on how to improve your (fake) performance chops, you absolutely can’t do better than these guys and gals.
It’s totally about freedom.. you don’t have to be a rock star to be a rock star.
I would say, at its height, it is performance art.
It’s judged like figure skating.. and it’s probably less absurd to watch than figure skating, if you think about it.
If you enjoy Guitar Hero and Rock Band even a little, you can’t not enjoy Air Guitar Nation. It’s great. I highly recommend either renting or buying it.
