Dance Crazes: Air Guitar


Air guitar is a form of dance and movement in which the performer pretends to play an imaginary rock or heavy metal style electric guitar, including riffs, solos, etc. It’s origins are unclear, however a popular theory is that Joe Cocker was the first exponent.

Some would argue that Bill Reed was the first air guitarist from the very famous 1950s Canadian vocal group, The Diamonds.

At 0:39 seconds of “Words Of Love” you’ll see Bill employ skills on his imaginary axe.
