Playing air guitar is serious business. Just ask any guy. Young or old,  I don't think there is a single guy who hasn't at least once in their life played a little air guitar.

Last weekend the 2011 National Air Guitar Championship Competition took place in Chicago.

The winner is Justin Howard also known as Nordic Thunder. The Chicago native wowed the crowd. Nordic Thunder will soon take off for Finland to compete in the Air Guitar World Championship.
