Air guitar is the age-old ritual that goes along with your favorite music and happens when a music fan has no musical talent of their own to actually play the song (in my case anyway). Instead, we turn to faking. Air guitar is basically the instrumental versions of lip sync. A very cool new toy called Air Picks has surfaced that make your air guitar actually playable.
The picks are shaped like your typical guitar pick, though they are significantly fatter than the real thing. The Air Picks are form a company called Flair in the UK and will hit stores in the next few weeks. There are several versions and each have three songs inside. I get the feeling that the tunes are the guitar portion only, but that isn’t clear.
They are songs you will know too with tracks from famous artists like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The toy will only play the next note in the song if you strum your air guitar. Pulling off that Angus Young kick move as you strum said air guitar is optional. Tracks include Jumping Jack Flash, Satisfaction, Born to be Wild, Smoke on the Water, and Sweet Home Alabama. I wonder if these will launch in the US as well.
