  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Nown Phrase 134. The noun phrase today is air guitar.

  • Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone, especially a young person is

  • playing air guitar, he or she is pretending to play an imaginary guitar.

  • often to rock music. Yeah. So they don't really have a guitar in the hand. They just go (rock guitar noises )

  • like you know, kind of like that with a guitar.

  • to whatever song it is that they like. And it's often copying the body language of

  • a particular or imagined guitarist. I mean you know, maybe somebody that they

  • have in mind that they like and they are kind of copying them. Or just any sort of

  • rock guitarist in general. If someone is playing air guitar, he or she may hum the

  • music or play pre-recorded ... maybe they played the song in the background. Music

  • in the background while pretending to play. So they're really getting into the

  • music. (electric guitar sounds) You know something like that. This noun first appeared in the 1980s. Probably

  • due to many young fans literally pretending to mimic. Meaning, meaning to

  • copy some of their favorite rock guitarists, especially heavy metal. Yeah.

  • You know, the heavy metal ones they always use the you know, like shake their

  • heads back and forth like that ( More guitar sounds) some something along that line. Tom Cruise, so here's examples here. Tom

  • Cruise first got noticed in an old movie called "Risky Business" in which he had a

  • scene that he played some air guitar in his underwear and you know, that was his

  • first big movie that he got noticed. I think he did make a few smaller sort of

  • teenage movies before this. But this was the one that got him noticed and then

  • his career you know started going in a... and in a bigger direction. All right. Number

  • two here. He likes to turn the music up loud and play air guitar by himself in

  • his room. So you know , a lot especially a lot of

  • young teenagers may do this. Or number three here. Every time that song comes on,

  • he will play air guitar to it. He just cannot help himself. So yeah , and you

  • might still see a lot of young people do this every now and then when they're

  • really getting into the music. So of course it's called an air guitar because

  • that really is no guitar there. You're just pretending like it's a guitar.

  • You're making the body language like it's a guitar. Anyway, I hope you got it.

  • I hope it is clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
