Downloading music if you're unable to afford CDs I can understand, but stealing money from an invalid that he actually needs unlike most downloaded musicians?

I've lost whatever little respect I had for you.

--agreed, i brought and paid for both Cacophony albums and Perpetual Burn because i honestly couldnt bring myself to 'steal' off Jason.

^It's part of gaining experience. You have no idea how much money I've spent on cd's I hated moments after puchasing them. But in the same process, I've also discovered gems. I was certain I hated Megadeth. Then I bought Rust In Peace. I've loved the band ever since. It's called Trial and Error.

my personal favorite cacophony song is black cat not sure why but that song just stands out from the other songs with vocals

but seriously buy the cds they are way worth it i couldnt find it on cd anywhere(i dont order online) so i had to buy it used on tape still worth it tho

anyone have the tabs/power tab for black cat i dont have guitar pro and i really want to play this song
#13
In my opinion, Concerto and Speed Metal Symphony are the best songs by Cacophony. The entire Perpetual Burn album is good. My favorites are Altitudes and Temple of the Absurd. Buy them legally.

My favorite Cacophony song is Images and my favorite Becker songs are Altitudes, End Of The Beginning, Blue, Higher and Perpetual Burn.

It's actually the song I like the least out of the ones I named, so... Kindof...

Unless you mean the album... Which is pretty obvious that it wouldn't be as he hasn't exactly released Zappa volumes of albums

Sweet.

As for my favorites:

Black Stallion, Jewel, EotB, Images, Altitudes, Higher, Eleven Blue Egyptians, Angel Eyes, Primal, If you Have to Shoot..., Mandy's Throbbing Heart, Thousand Million Suns, Throat Hole, Urmila, and others that I've forgotten to mention. Most of the last ones I mentioned were written to be performed with David Lee Roth, but never got the chance to be. Still awesome riffage and solos going on though.

Haha, I actually ordered in Perpetual Burn, Perspective and The Raspberry Jams online for a ripoff price after reading up Becker's story...Sigh. That man is just amazing. Live strong Jason Becker. As for his songs I really like Air and Altitudes, and ofcourse Serrana. End of the Beginning is IMO what can be described as "epic". Just wow, I don't know how he does it. Images and Black Stallion are also great songs. Heck everything is great...
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!

Yeah, Jason is a one-of-a-kind musician. All of his stuff seems so great and genious.
As Marty Friedman once said: "Jason is not just a musician but a composer-up to the likes of Bach & Beethoven" or something along the lines of that.

And I agree with him, I got into his music a few years ago after hearing "Speed Metal Symphony". I just had to buy those albums...

Perpetual Burn has to be one of the greatest albums ever-in any genre, it's just too genious from beginning to end. If only he could still play...

The worst part is, my grandfather had ALS & only lived for 3 days after he was diagnosed. So I sort of know how his family must feel with him having it. The fact that Jason is still alive after about 15 years is incredible and his attitude towards his current life is more than an inspiration.


Personally, if ur thinking of getting into Becker's work, look up all of his material, but the greatest works are his 2 albums w/ Cacophony & Perpetual Burn imo.

Anyone hear anything off the "The Blackberry Jams"? I just recently heard about this album and I was curious to know if anyone has purchased it/heard anything off of it.

Yep. Blackberry Jams and Raspberry Jams are both tracks filled with random playings and demos that Jason did. I have Raspberry Jams myself and it is amazing. Each have around 30 songs on them, and a song can range from 30 seconds (only like 2 though) to 5+minutes. Really good stuff. Quite a few on Raspberry Jams were recorded to be played with David Lee Roth, but didn't get to due to ALS I believe. There are definitely some killer riffages/solos on that CD. As for Blackberry Jams, I'm ordering it once I get back to the U.S. As much as I've heard off of the 30 second clips from Amazon.com, some of the tracks are actually different versions of his other songs. I believe there are different versions of Altitudes (Called Optitudes), Images, Jewel, Temple/Dweller, Mabel's Fatal Fable, and other songs, although my memory is kind of hazy. I'm really looking forward to getting it since Raspberry Jams kicked major ass. Showed a completely different side of Becker; Jazz/Blues/Dylan influences. Pretty neat. There is definitely a lot less pure shred compared to his Perpetual Burn. Like a Perspective mixed with Perpetual Burn mixed with 80's riffages. Good stuff.

Go check out the samples on Amazon.

And there is my answer. I can always count on you for this stuff

I, personally, tend to not mention specifics when I am not disappointed by any of the pieces by the musician at hand. For whatever reason, I am quite fond of pretty much all of Jason's songs; including that one

I was going to buy Perpetual Burn yesterday, but it was $25, and I decided that was too much. I was buying five other albums, and didn't have that money to spare.

Yeah, I often buy off of Amazon, but this was a spur-of-the moment thing, purchasing for a road trip I'm making today. There wasn't time to mail-order, you know.
