More than 1,000 people brandished imaginary Fender and Gibson electric guitars this week to break a world record.

br /> A grand total of 1,261 music fans assembled at Sheffield Arena and pretended to blast out the chords to Pretender by The Foo Fighters.

The record attempt formed part of The Rock Challenge tour, a performing arts competition which encourages young people to experience the buzz of being on stage firsthand.

Zoie Golding, producer of the event, commented: "Seeing so many people who believe in what Rock Challenge stands for coming together and helping us break a world record was amazing."

He added that watching over 1,000 people taking part brought tears to his eyes.

This means the previous record set only a few weeks ago by the cast and crew of Rock of Ages in New York no longer stands.

More than 800 air guitarists spent two minutes on Broadway rocking out to Don't Stop Believin' by Journey.
