I've just been asked to deliver a 'lecture' at the Air Guitar Training camp in Finland:
The party starts already on Wednesday 24 August at the High Altitude Camp, which takes place on an island situated near the Oulu City Centre. The camp leads its participants to the basics of Air Guitar, for example through choreography studies and private lessons from previous Champions. Also music videos will be made for each of the Air Guitarists for promotional use. The camp ends on Thursday 25 August. The participation fee for the camp is 75 euros, including lectures and exercises, accommodation, sauna and meals as well as a final exam."

isn't that fantastically exciting?!!

we are the champions, my friends

I've been in touch with Marika, the lovely organiser of the World Chamionships in Oulu, Finland and am most determined to get out there this August to see what, if any, are the differences between competing in the UK and on the world stage (though from an observational point of view - I don't think I've got the guts or the stamina to get up there myself). The variety of countries involved is surprising: the United Arab Emirates and Canada have signed up this year.

Having decided to make the trip, all I need to do now if find the dosh to pay for it as those Scandinavian countries are notoriously tough going on the purse.

action shot

here's me practising what I preach

air buddies

Have made contact with Dan in New York who is writing a book on air guitar. Am thrilled that I'm not alone in my obsession and that there's someone else out there who thinks it's worthy of examination. I'm guessing his will be a totally different perspective to mine - I'm in the UK, he's in the US; I'm female, he's not! etc etc...

all new to me

Have decided to set up this blog, in the hope that it will spur me on to write about my phd as and when ideas come to me.

Did I mention I'm doing research into air guitar?
