After a few bevies it’s easy to feel you’ve missed your calling as the world’s greatest guitarist. It doesn’t matter if you have an instrument in hand, sometimes the need to strum is just too powerful. And that’s the beauty of air guitar – anyone can dream they’re a rock ’n’ roll star (for a few minutes anyway). If you think you’ve got the mad miming skills to take to the stage, preferably before the many drinks, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Air Guitar UK Championships are coming to town on May 4 at The Dome in Tufnell Park. As well as the capital’s finest musical flailers, there will be guests including author Robert Rankin and comedians Andrew O’Neill and Tony Marrese to entertain you between bouts. Plus, the winner will be get a free trip to the upcoming world championships in Finland. Get practising now (and please wear some slightly longer shorts).
