Who can dethrone Romeo DanceCheetah (pictured) and become the USA’s Air Guitar Champion? US Air Guitar, the official American regulatory body of competitive guitar playing without guitars has announced the schedule for their regional competitions, the entry point for amateur air guitarists hoping to make it to the big time.
Canada’s Air Guitar association seems to have lost their web domain, and their Facebook page is not that enlightening (unless you’re interested in the 4-week acai berry diet), so who knows what the state of Canadian air guitar is since three-time champ Johnny Utah retired last year. Perhaps someone will step in to fill the imaginary void left behind.
