We've all been moved to wildly strum the air and make contorted faces when Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" comes on the radio. Of course, we lack any sort of musical skill and smartly sat out of the national Air Guitar Championships
at the Paradise
last night. Contestants were judged on technical merit, showmanship, and even "airness" (or, how much the performance was an object of art by itself, not only a simulation of playing guitar).
