Guitar Center to Offer Air Guitar Lessons

Guitar Center to Offer Air Guitar Lessons

Guitar Center will be a provider of elite instruction for air guitar at locations nationwide, either in-person or online, starting April 1. Students will learn all the moves—the proper stance, the rock face, crowd engagement, swaying vs. bouncing, and the infamous windmill. A special unit will cover the dangers of headbanging. “It’s all about having fun while staying safe. Too much headbanging can lead to neck cramps and headaches, and the performance will suffer,” remarked Gruendler. 

Instructors will share their expertise on the fundamentals of imaginary rock, from riffs and solos to power chords and dramatic strums. Repertoire will be tailored to each student’s personal tastes, but will generally include work from Ramones, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Bon Jovi. An advanced curriculum will incorporate lip-synching.  

“Maybe we have a future Air Guitar World Champion in our midst,” noted Gruendler. “With any luck, we will nurture that talent right here in the walls of a neighborhood Guitar Center.”
