“Technically, the air guitar is a wind instrument”

Is an “air guitar” a wind instrument? Actually, pretending to play a guitar is not playing an instrument at all.

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.

Technically, air guitar is performance art similar to dance.

False. A wind instrument uses wind to make sound. An air guitar, on the other hand, is non-existent.
