Best Moment at GH05: “”It was great meeting all the people from GP, Joe Satriani, Steve and Trevor Lukather, and all of the other Guitar Hero contestants. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and supportive. Some new friendships have been formed, and I look forward to seeing everyone in the near future. The pinnacle of the experience was being able to share my music with a larger audience—which has always been my ultimate goal. I’ll never forget standing on stage after my performance and getting to hear the judges comment on my playing. Thanks to GP and everyone involved for an unforgettable experience, and a special thanks to my family and friends for supporting me over the years.”
