I saw that there was no Jason Becker Thrread and decided that he deserves one.

My favourite song of his is probably perpetual burn with altitudes coming in a close second.

Thoughts, Songs, Videos anyone?

I searched, our last big one got closed.
So ya, he was by biggest inspiration way back over the summer of 05, don't listen to him as much now, but I still enjoy throwing on perpetual burn or perspective once in a while. No love for cacophony though.

I actually haven't been listening to JB for a while. (Josh Groban takes that cake). Either way, now that I think about it, I feel like learning me some new JB tunes.

Jason Becker is beyond words for me. Not his music so much, but his outlook on life in general inspires me to be thankful for the things I take for granted. As far as songs, Perpetual Burn is the best in my book.

PB and Altitudes..... oh yeah,... what amp did he use on Altitudes ?? Sounded like an ADA MP1 to me !!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

yeah perpetual burn is awesome but id have to say i like end of the beginning more.

I can't really say I have a favorite, because all of Jason's music is amazing, but the one I've been listening to alot lately is Eleven Blue Egyptians. You gotta love the "blues" solos at the end with Becker and Friedman.

i dig Perpetual Burn, i managed to play it all the way through once, it took me at least half an hour, cause i can't play as fast as becker (obviously) and cause when id mess up a section id play it over again, the tapping section on that song was bloody hard.

i dig cacophony's instrumental stuff, im a friedman fan too though. Most of cacophony's vocal cuts were lousy though, at least the ones i have.

Jason is one of, if not THE biggest, influences on my outlook on and attitude towards life. Mainly because we share a similar problem.

And his music is most excellent.

I'm tempted to report this thread because of how weird this is getting.

"What would you give to be able to feel your fingers on a fret board again?
—Terry Kidd

Actually I have total feeling in my whole body, so I can feel the fret board, but I know what you mean. Hmmm. I would give my left nut, but definitely not my right one. I would give up both my hands and all my guitars. I would give up 10” of my penis (but only 10). I would give all my billions of dollars away (I wish). I would give up my marriage to Sarah McLachlan."

Jason Becker is my ultimate hero. He's the reason I still play guitar and actually try to improve. Poor guy. He's unbelievably talented. It's hard to choose one song I love the most. Right now I'm learning Air on both acoustic and electric though.

Hey my thread's back!

Anyone know anything about his greatest hits compilation or the rumoured movie?
"That Hidde's a cool guy" -Abe Lincoln
"Hidde? Yeah we jam all the time" -Steve Vai

So I heard you liek profiles?
#33
I'm looking into an amp that can get the type of tone he had on Perpetual Burn. I was looking at the Marshall 2061x (used) and a Marshall Mk. II plexi. Will those get close to it? Any other ideas?

there is a movie coming out but from what iv heard its only in the writing stage right now
that'd be awsome if it came out in cinemas instead of some tv documentry or right to dvd that way it can show more people what an amazing guitarist/optimist/person jason becker is. hardly anyone who doesn't play guitar has heard of him and i for one think thats a shame

New album is coming out soon! This year, I just forgot the date because I think it got delayed a little bit.

Any news on the movie?

Now for my question, The Raspberry Jams or The Blackberry Jams?
