Competitive air guitar is totally a thing. A real live, fire breathing, sweaty beast of a thing with a mission to make the world a better place through invisible guitars.
Here’s their mission statement
US Air Guitar is devoted to taking our nation’s unofficial pastime out of the bedroom and putting it up on the national and world stage. Founded in 2003, the US Air Guitar Championships has grown into a major national event that reaches more cities, fans and competitors every year. As the only official national competition recognized by the Air Guitar World Championships, US Air Guitar sends our national champions to compete for the world title in Oulu, Finland every year.
US Air Guitar is also dedicated to advancing the larger purpose set forth by the Air Guitar World Championships: to promote world peace. According to the Finnish ideology of air guitar: _“Wars would end, climate change stop and all bad things disappear, if all the people in the world played the air guitar.”
