Wikipedia: Air guitar
Air guitar is a form of dance and movement in which the performer pretends to play an imaginary rock or heavy metal-style electric guitar, including riffs, solos, etc. Playing an air guitar usually consists of exaggerated strumming and picking motions and is often coupled with loud singing or lip-synching. Air guitar is generally used in the imaginary simulation of loud electric or acoustic guitar music.

20 November 2001, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland), “Shopper finds gift has no strings attached,” pg. 21:
Adverts for the CD, which is intended to inspire buyers to play the air guitar in front of the mirror, promises a free air guitar with every copy.
