Unstrum Hero is the Air Guitar UK online heat which is being run by E4, all you have to do is upload a 60 second video where you ‘Aireoke’ (perform Air Guitar) to one of the tracks from the set list which include Motorhead ‘Ace of Spades’, Rainbow ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’, Wolfmother ‘Joker and the Thief’ and Bullet for my Valentine ‘Tears Don’t Fall’. The winner will go through to compete in the Air Guitar UK Championship held at the Islington Academy in London on August 8th 2008. Travel and accommodation will be provided for you and a friend to the contest. You will then be flown with a friend to Finland on the 21st August to watch the Air Guitar World Championship. You will be provided with two nights accommodation before being flown home on the 23rd August.
But wait thats not all! The winner also wins a Gibson Les Paul Studio and considering most air guitarists probably don’t know their Les Paul’s from the SG’s they won’t mind that it is a Studio and not a Standard!
