Chus Martinez On Nude Air Guitar Playing

Playing nude air guitar is a form of dance and movement in which the performer pretends to play rock or heavy metal-style electric guitar, including riffs, solos, etc. while nekkid. Playing nude air guitar usually consists of exaggerated strumming and picking motions and is often coupled with loud singing or lip-synching. Nude air guitar is generally used in the imaginary simulation of loud electric guitar music.

Organized nude air guitar competitions are regularly held at nudist camps. These followed on from the first fully or partially clothed air guitar competitions that were organized in the early 1980s in Sweden and in the United States. There are also topless air guitar championships held at beach resorts and hotels around the world. Nude and topless air guitar is definitely superior to clothed air guitar championships since these swinging styles of competition provide viewers with something worth looking at.

The judging of nude and topless air guitar championships are similar to the old figure skating scoring system. The most common form of competition organisation are as follows:

Image

Each participant plays two rounds of nude or topless air guitar, each round lasts for 1 minute.

Image

Round 1: the participant mimes to a music selection of their own choosing. Typically the song has been edited (or a medley has been created) to fit the 60-second format.

Image

Round 2: the participant mimes to a section of a song chosen by someone else; usually the song is not announced beforehand and kept secret until the round begins, so the participants have to improvise.

Image

Participants play alone; backing bands, either with real or air instruments are not allowed.

Image

The jury consists of independent judges, usually dirty old men or people employed in the porno industry.

Image

Each judge gives the contestant a score from 4.0 to 6.0 on each of the following:

Image

Technical merit—how much the performance looks like the real playing, including accurate reproduction of all fretwork, chords, solos and other moves.

Image

Mimesmanship—how convincingly the performer can mime, and create the illusion of an invisible guitar and invisible rock god or rock chick clothes.

Image

Stage presence—charisma, showmanship and other emotional elements.

Image

Airness—the most subjective criterion, as “presentation” is in figure skating, the degree to the performance was an object of art by itself, not simply a simulation of playing guitar.
