I’m Tim “The Six String General” Granlund and I’m going to show you how to air guitar.
Now, we’re going to talk about costumes. Now of course, remember you’re playing an instrument that isn’t there. You’re playing the Air Guitar. It’s pretty ridiculous thing. You want to make sure that you’ve got the outfit to match. There are a lot of different ways to pick out your costume. You’re going to also have to pick up a name to go with it. You got to have your stage name. Different categories of costumes, different kind of styles you can go. You can just go with your basic kind of rocker outfit, just have a cool rocking t-shirt, some leather pants, and just rock that out, show off you’re a rock purist.
Maybe you want to take it a little bit crazier, a little wilder. You want to get into sort of a party mode and just play up the comedy side of what you’re doing. So get up, it’s like that. And there is the ever popular spandex. You want to go total 80s style, show off your fantastic legs and your tight buttocks. But make sure you keep the proper things accentuated and use key props such as foil-wrapped cucumbers. Of course, maybe that’s a little too ridiculous for you and you want to go with something a little more dignified.
Keep in mind, the nicest thing you could wear to an Air Guitar competition is your denim short shorts. And then of course, you can glam things up and just play up the whole showbiz aspect of this. You know, go for that glam rock look, like what I’m wearing. You can take something that already exists and then just sort of jazz it up. I worked with military, you can do some jewels and make some sparkly shiny things on it. Sparkly is good. And of course, you can accentuate it with crazy belt buckles and just look badass and tough and make you look like the craziest rocker ever.
And of course, you want to make sure you’ve got some cool graphics on there. They just really spice things up. You can see the model I like to use on the back there, the neon pink Gibson Flying V. So I like to just show people what it is that I’m rocking their faces off with.
Okay, so that’s a little bit about costumes and how you can enhance your performance with your outfits. Next up, we’re going to talk about what it’s all about, the competitions.
