I think it should be 'Sniff' for inhalation through the nose, snort is more exhalation through the nose as in the definition below: noun 1. an explosive sound made by the sudden forcing of breath through one's nose, used to express indignation, derision, or incredulity. "he gave a snort of disgust" verb 1. make a sudden explosive sound through one's nose, especially to express indignation or derision. "she snorted with laughter"

+1 Yea snorting is always exhaling (forcefully), whether it is with laughter or as a sign of discontent. The only time it refers to inhaling is when it is about drugs.

Haven't you ever seen Deliverance? "Squeal like a pig!" That one should also work.

Also, "knock on wood" is almost exclusively done on tables and desks, in my experience. Knock should work - it's a word that sounds like what it describes.

All I could think about for guitar was Kabong! from Quickdraw McGraw/El Kabong. They just don't make cartoons like those classic Hannah-Barbara anymore.
