The Legendary Guitar of Jason Becker

The tragic and ultimately heroic story of one of the most awe-inspiring and innovative metal guitar heroes of the eighties. As co-member of Cacophony, with Marty Friedman, Becker defined the liquid-smooth super-complex playing style that characterized the Los Angeles guitarists of the decade. After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease in the early nineties, Becker has continued to play and compose. This DVD features rare and archive footage of both Cacophony and many solo performances. Furthermore, the film includes Becker’s guitar clinic at the Atlanta Institute of Music, giving a poignant insight into this legendary figure.

  • Japan clinic (1989)
  • Jason’s studio (1987)
  • Kennedy High school (1986)
  • Cacophony (Live)
  • Biography of Jason Becker

Jason Becker, the closest thing that rock guitar has had to a “prodigy” in its history, was stricken with ALS in his early 20s. That makes this DVD all the more priceless because Jason is unable to play now. Not much of the video here seems to be professionally shot, but the content is amazing! Loads of footage of Jason in his prime, including the maestro giving a guitar clinic, some home studio footage, and some performance footage of Jason in the band Cacophony with his friend and co-guitarist Marty Friedman.
Jason Becker is an impressively gifted Rock Guitar player. He comes from the 80’s shredder school that gave us Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen and others.
At the end of that decade he got sick and couldn’t play again. Here you have a chance to see some of his best performance, live and in the format of video clinics. If you love Rock Guitar, you will love this DVD. It is simply AWESOME.

    Undoubtedly THE GOD OF THE GUITAR, and so far, there’s no one that can equal the gift and talent he had. May God Almighty have mercy on him.
