    Learning Air Guitar as an Adult: Lame or not?

    I've always wanted to play air guitar.

    Very good advice. Where do I plug it in? I wouldn't be caught dead playing acoustic.

    Guitar behind the wheel?!?!?! Very risky. Drums are a safer bet.

    I mostly listen to punk or metal, so I'm always secretly hoping that people in neighboring vehicles start moshing.

    ...for the record I prefer to play air guitar covers of DRI rather than Anthrax.

    Slightly different part of the spectrum. Also good. However, I think DRI and Anthrax are closer together and occupy more of the same space than does Die Kreuzen. So if I am in the mood for that space, I am probably going to listen to DRI or even Suicidal Tendencies's more metal side. Ya, sometimes I like the more "mainstream" bands. Whatever. Anyway, my initial response was meant to be a humorous play on metal, punk and mosh, so that song was perfect. Which then made me think about the Thrash Hard album. And then the time in '94 that I saw Suicidal open for Metallica. Interesting, that. From there I moved on to Corrosion of Conformity. Clean my Wounds.

    I play real guitar. My air instrument of choice is drums. That's even worse in a car than air guitar because you have to use your feet.
