Shred Some Air With These Photos From The 2015 Air Guitar World Championships

Cheapest instrument ever.

Finland hosted the 20th edition of the Air Guitar World Championships last week, a contest that spotlights the most awesome invisible guitar playing.

This edition brought 17 contestants to a rain-slicked stage and the weather didn't seem to put a damper on the crazy acrobatics or righteous "guitar" solos. 

Kereel "Your Daddy" Blumenkrants was the first Russian ever to win the competition.

Check out the contestants' sick moves in the photos and video below.
