The Legendary Guitar of Jason Becker
Hot Licks Series
Finally available, the long-awaited DVD transfer of one of Hot Licks' most popular rock videos ever, The Legendary Guitar of Jason Becker. Becker's life story is amazing and heartbreaking - at the age of 17, he recorded two CDs with Marty Friedman, followed by two amazing solo albums, leading to his win as "Best New Guitarist" in Guitar Magazine (1990.) He later joined David Lee Roth's band, where he confidently filled the shoes of Roth's old bandmate Eddie Van Halen. Unfortunately, Becker contracted ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) but this did not prevent him from releasing a follow-up solo album a dozen years later.
This DVD not only includes the original video footage from the classic Hot Licksseries (Jason Becker himself teaching you his unique rock guitar style,) but also archival footage of Jason from 1986 - 1999, his guitar clinic at the Atlanta Institute of Music, archival footage of Cacophony, his band with Marty Friedman, solo performances, and selected historical footage. Please note that the Jason Becker DVD is not subtitled or dubbed in other languages.
