I pay homage to that man.  There may have been better before, during, and after, but none could equal the intense brilliance that he portrayed in his music.

This post is definitely a tip-of-the-hat to Jason Becker.

The record he did for David Lee Roth was freak'in-tastic! I really regret not having him around anymore...

And on a related note, you might wanna check (found it today) this dude... (JB stuff, according to the website).

he does have a device that allows him to spell out words and what not by certain motions of his eyes. im not sure how it works but it enables him to communicate and to write music. it reminds me of a modern mozart, being able to write down music without playing it and knowing exactly how it will sound. I know people, including myself, can only do things like that to a certain extent, but it must really be some kind of gift to be able to create a 4 part piece (SATB) including percussion horns, etc, all in your head.

Yes, it’s quite an intriguing story, Jason Becker’s life, and quite spelled out in Jason’s own words at his website (that seems to be in dire need of an update).   I hope he completes his book so I may understand more of what’s in his wondrous mind.

He's somewhat impressive toonman, though a bit sloppy.  I won't lay any claim to fame myself in such a talent, but I miss an old friend of mine who looked at Jason Becker’s work with respect, played it flawlessly himself after a few sit-ins to listen to Perpetual Burn, then moved on to work on his own phenomenal musical endeavors.  He's since quit all forms of music and has gone into photography (which he's phenomenal at as well.)

The natural "Mozart's" of the world seem to meet a fate that goes beyond understanding to us mere mortals.

I'm sorry, I wasn't clear enough... what I meant is that it's that apparentl it's a JB piece... but the player himself is someone in Japan, I think (the webpage has some info I think). I thought it was just an interesting link.

If jason becker releases a book i will definately get it. I'm sure it will be incredibly inspirational. despite his condition he still has an amazing outlook on life. To me he is inspirationally not only musically, but on how to look at life.
