    To those of us who actually play or have played guitar professionally, watching someone play "air guitar" is painful, disturbing, and sick. I can throw down some mean blues licks without moving much more than my fingers and minimal hand movements (part of the key to getting fast is learning how to make notes in alternate locations, so you don't have to make very gross left-hand movements) - those wankers act like every guitar lead is an aerobic workout.

    Yeah -- like playing piano on a desk -- but worse. I guess there are "air saxes" -- any other instruments so bastardized? I don't think I'll ever see someone playing an "air oboe" eh? :rofl: oopps... just threw the temptation out there...

    I play piano and desk piano, and I play guitar and air guitar.

    I once witnessed a heavy metal air guitar contest. Gross.

    its stupid, our arms are not sensitive, to make complex features such as typing on a keyboard, or playing a guitar... though gloves could be good for some actions... but i dont think that is would be effective as a guitar.

    still it sounds pretty cool...

    It's cool that they can do that stuff with the sensors, but the air-guitar part isn't that cool.

    I wonder if they could refine it enough to be able to play stuff like



    That on it.
