Any one can play air guitar. You don't have to spend a bunch of money on guitar lessons and a guitar. If a girl wants you to seranade her with a song you can just pull out your air guitar. Air guitars are amazingly cool and it doesn't matter which notes you play because you make the sounds yourself. Also air guitar is freakin amazing because it was used in the 1989 movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure, which is probaly the coolest movie ever. IN this movie the air gutiars make real sounds. so Obiously air guitars are better.

Air guitars are imaginary. Yes everyone can play them, but if you make the sounds yourself, there's basically no point in having instruments at all. Guitars make sounds and are used for musical purposes and fun. Air guitars... not so much.

Yes but its less costly to own a air guitar and you can always play one. A air guitar is always fun, people always smile when they play air guitar. but people don't always smile when they play a real guitar because its hard and they keep missing notes. like I could play "free bird" on air guitar but not on real guitar this means air guitars are more fun.

Con

First of all, it doesn't make it more fun. I'm sure somone that can play "Free Bird" on guitar would beg to differ with you. On the otherhand, myabe the reason you think air guitar is more fun is becuase you can't play guitar? When playing real guitar, missing a note gives you a chance to get better. Which means you get to play more and more. Air guitar you'll never miss a note, therefore it gets boring. Also, who would want to listen to guitar noises of the mouth?

It is also more frustrating to miss a note on regular guitar and this is why many people quit. And no i cannot play guitar but I can play air guitar better than any one i know. Therefore air guitar is better than real guitar because of its simplicity and overall fun.

Con

it gets frustrating yes but a lot of things are frustrating. you don't get any noise from air guitar. or cool designs of a guitars. or duet on guitar.

this is pointless, anyone would agree.

real guitars are much better because you can hear it and feel it. if you're deaf, you feel the vibrations of the music your making. if not, than you can hear your mistakes and faults.

Air guitar is for cheap impersonators who have nothing better to do than sit back and mope about their lives, how they will never become the great rock god they yearn to be. They are hopefuls and dreamers, and will never get anywhere in life.

You know I tried playing air guitar the other day. It was a tad bit boring. I also had the music in the background. I don't know I guess it doesn't amuse as it must you Loofa.

Real guitar is what it's about.

Exactly, Loofa. I do that all the time. To assume that air guitar is inferior to real guitar is an audist viewpoint and gravely prejudice.

But I do like regular guitar.

My, my, choices..

If your deaf you can have an easier time listining if you are making the sounds your self.
Posted by Cybourgeoisie 9 years ago
Cybourgeoisie
No, that's not true. Humming and faking the sounds is perfectly adequate. If you have interested friends, I'm sure they would gladly join you with air drums and air vocals.

ok, wow, this is a pointless debate. no noise comes from air guitar therefore you cant enjoy it unless a song is playing in the background. with real guitar you can actually play your favorite songs

um....how can air guitar be fun at all if you arent really accomplishing anything? lol well, i guess it is a matter of opinion, because if you cant play real guitar, air guitar is OBVIOUSLY going to be more fun...

Air guitars are great for deaf people who otherwise have difficulty hearing the mesh of instruments in a band. As a deaf bassist, I am impartial to the winner of this debate. Continue!
