Electronic Guitar Shirt
Let's face it. No one looks cool playing air guitar. Not even the likes of Eddie Van Halen or Joe Satriani would come anywhere near close to looking cool whilst playing air guitar. People who think that air guitar looks cool need to be laughed at and ridiculed for the misguided folk that they truly are.
If you ask me, the biggest flaw in air guitar is the simple fact that other than the swooshing of the most vigorous of practitioners, there's no sound. If only they had an Electronic Guitar Shirt then maybe it wouldn't be so bad.
If you've ever wished that your t-shirt could double as an electric guitar then this is by far your day, and if you've never made such a wish then you probably know someone who has. The Electronic Guitar Shirt does exactly what it says on the tin and comes with a magnetic plectrum and miniature amp with tone and volume knobs. Simply press your fingers onto the touch sensitive "fretboard" and strum away - That's pretty much it. No skill? No worries! Each of the touch sensitive buttons represents a major chord - You'll not be setting the shirt alight with "Eruption" or "Run to the Hills", but your average 'Quo song should be a doddle!
Not that it's likely to receive such treatment from the average metalhead, but the Electronic Guitar Shirt is fully machine washable! Just be sure to make sure you don't stick the amp and the rest of the electro stuff in with the rest of the coloured wash.
If you looked around, you could probably pick up a cheapy electric guitar and a black t-shirt for not much more than the cost of the Electronic Guitar Shirt, but then you'd have real chords to learn, tuning, scales, and let's not even mention those fingertip calluses. Far too much effort!
Now leave your dignity at the door, get up on that stage and melt some faces!
"Why is it pointless?"
You'll look like someone who desperately wants to play guitar but can't
"Why is it cool?"
It's a shirt that you can make music on! And you'll look a whole lot cooler than your average air guitarist
