Founding Guitar Player's Guitar Hero competition — renamed "Guitar Superstar" after a couple of years — was one of the major delights of my career. I met so many fantastic and talented players as a result of the international contest, and it's still a thrill to see the "Superstar Alumni" continue to forge amazing careers.
Juan Coronado — one of our 2007 finalists — just sent me his latest "one-man band" production, and I thought I'd share it with the GP community. The Canadian resident actually did play all the instruments on this 8-string romp. Way to go, Juan!
So what do YOU think of "Cream 8 Me"?
And here's Coronado's 2007 Guitar Hero performance. The evening was hosted by Metalocalypse's Brendon Small, and you can see GP's Jude Gold and BP's Jonathan Herrera in the house band.
