PHOTOS: Wannabe shredders at the Air Guitar Championships

Masters of the invisible axe battle for supremacy. And make very silly faces.

IS IT AN embarrassing dads’ convention? Is it a U2 concert? Is there even a difference? Anyway, it’s the Ninth German Air Guitar Championship.

The prestigious national event for would-be shredders and gurners took place in Berlin on Saturday, with contestants lining up to demonstrate their skills on the invisible axe.

According to the tournament’s website, four-time champion Christian Sweep – who rejoices in the air guitar name Heart Buckboard – took his fifth title with “a fun mix of music from Korn, Metallica and cat sounds”.

The site give a comprehensive list of terms and conditions for player, including Air Guitar Rule #1: “The instrument must consist of air, that is to be invisible.” (Full list here via Google Translate.)

Here’s Mr Buckboard in action alongside the other contestants:
