Which instrument do you air play to music?

Found myself air drumming to a Priest song (Desert Plains live) a few minutes ago, and thought I'd create a poll here to see which instrument you air play to music.

If you answer "other", please explain in a post.

I'm an air drummer myself. Never liked guitars, and I can't play anyway. My dad's a drummer, so I guess it's only natural for me then...

Didn't make this multiple choice, in order to force people to pick their "primary" choice. Sorry about that...

Bass mostly, since I play a real one of those, but I've been known to try my hand at air guitar and keyboards from time to time.

I do actually try to play air drums for real sometimes to teach myself coordination, but never just for fun, because I'd look ridiculous.

Drums. Im a guitar player, so I think it would be odd for me to play air guitar.

Bass - grew up playing and it stuck. I saw a live rush concert on the HD music channel last night. Geddy voice was BAD, but his bass was BADASS!!!

I have a guitar, but I never talked myself into spending the money/storage space on a drum kit, so it's a no-brainer which one I air play.

Actually, more often than air drumming, I try to find different things to beat on to replicate the whole beat of a kit. And a guitar body makes an ok stand-in for bongos.

Theremins rock. There's a feature movie about Leon Theremin- fascinating character. He was abducted by the KGB and sent to a labor camp in the USSR. And, Messaien used a similar device in Turangalila, an Ondes Martinot.

The fact that they did that to Boston just makes it so much better.
