It's a shame what has happened to music isn't it? I just came across your music a few months ago and was completely blown away. All of that modern crap doesn't even compare. We love you here in Canada man!

Your music changed my life, as simple as that. I felt a slap on my face the first tie i heard "Altitudes"... And in the nineties there was no LP, K7 or CD here in Chile... Until one day I travelled to Paris, and I found your CD in a Virgin Store... My God, that travel worth it! Can yo believe I hear your themes, at least one at the day, since then? Can you imagine how your music has become so big? it's amazing... By the way, thanks for making so great music until today.

Just discovered your music on Pandora. Incredible, what a talent. No words to describe it really! I wish you all the strength, luck, and love in your battle. Hope life brings you joy no matter the circumstances.

Querido hermano Jason Baker:

Soy hijo de artistas (mis padres se han dedicado a la danza) y yo toco la guitarra flamenca, amo la guitarra en todos sus estilos, pero mi verdadera vocación es ser fraile, soy fraile franciscano capuchino. Mi convento está en Madrid, en la Iglesia de S. Antonio de Cuatro Caminos. Bravo Murillo, nº150.

Yo no te conocía, y ayer me encontré con toda tu historia. Durante toda la tarde estuve escuchando tu musica y recorriendo la historia de tu vida. Lo siento, pero no pude menos de emocionarme durante un buen rato. Sí, lloré porque me dolía tu historia hasta lo más profundo del alma. Lo que me consoló fue ver la familia y amigos que tienes. Pero sobre todo, tú, la energía que transmites sin poder moverte de tu silla.
Me he escuchado todo lo que he podido conseguir de tu música, espectacular. Dios te ha dado el don de la música en forma de guitarra. Me gustaría proponerte algo Jason: ¿Podrías componer una melodía por el "amor de Dios"? No sé si eres creyente o no. En el caso de que no seas creyente, supongo que el AMOR será el centro de tu vida e inspiración, ¿podrías crear una melodía con el título "AMOR"?

El Señor te bendiga y te guarde; te muestre su rostro y tenga misericordia de ti. Vuelva su rostro a ti y te dé la paz. El Señor te bendiga, hermano Jason Beker. (esta oración se la ofreció S. Francisco de Asis al hermano León y hoy yo te las ofrezco...)

PAZ Y BIEN, HERMANO JASON BEKER

Hi Jason,I`m 14,and I`m from Bosnia and Herzegovina,so you now know that people know for you here too. :)
You are the best!You rock!Your music is amazing,I was amazed when first hearing End Of The Beginning and Blue,but these are not the only amazing compositions.
You are the best guitarist I have ever herd of (and I think I won`t find better than you),not because of the technique or anything technical, but because of your great musicianship which produces some of the best music ever!
Hope you`ll keep on making great music!
Best Wishes

27/11/06: David - dalmeida@medscape.com
Jason - you are the greatest ever!

Being a medical student in neurosurgery, I see all too often the devastation of ALS. I am sorry for what you have endured.

Yet being a guitar player, your music has blown me away. Your technical talent, humor, and superhuman compositional ability cannot be touched by anything. I have a charvel jason becker prototype (the one with the 1,3,5,7 fret markings) hanging in my living room and it inspires me each day!

BEST WISHES ALWAYS!

You have inspired my playing a great deal, Thank you Jason. I remember seeing you play yngwie's Black star on a video clip while u were at highschool, and I was thinking "Holy shit, who the fuck is this guy?" God bless you Jason. Your music will live on forever, as will your presence in all of us.

26/08/06: EMmanuel - seraphcarvalho@hotmail.com
Jason Becker is better musician what i see! THE BEST!

13/08/06: Sean K - shafee33@hotmail.com
I struggled, and fought to find that line of hope, passion, inspiration, dreams, and that reason to fight on everyday. I had to look no further than you Jason. Without your heart in this life, and your shear genius and passion in your music, I would not have a reason to fight for my dreams. You have restored my hope and helped me to become the musician I am today. My prayers are always with you Jason.

I only hope one day i will be able to honour you through my music, you keep me going dude. You will live forever in my eyes, and so will your music.

And i know one day you will hold that guitar again and be at peace...get well

much love and many thanks,

Sean

10/08/06: Michael - thrasher9@web.de
Jason, your guitar playing kick ass, I think you are so brilliant and perfect I can't describe clearly cause my English is still fuckin terrible...
I'm sure deep in you, there is something which is stronger than this fucking disease.
You should know that you and your music are so wonderful,
Jason you are a GOD!!!

04/08/06: Martin Zoso - morder_killer@hotmail.com
Jason Becker, you are the best and greatest guitarist of all time.
You will always be.
We all will never forget you.

I dont know what to add that someone else haven't said to you before, but...you are special to me, YOU are my inspiration, as a musician and as a person. Thank you for existing and for pushing us musicians to a higher level...from playing with our hands to playing with our hearts and souls.

//edwin

31/07/06: Alex - alex_mihail@hotmail.co.uk
Dear Jason,
I just wanted to say, I love you, you are such a great person and such an inspiration to me.

Getting such a horrible disease that has you in the state your are in is a cruel thing to do to a musician of your skill I feel.

All the best Jason, I will never forget you

- Alex M.

22/07/06: micky - mick_demertzi@hotmail.com
ey Jason, just wanted to say if you ever read this, you are so amazing. All your music (even Cacophony stuff) is just so beautifully composed and put together. Your music has the ability to make me want to play guitar for hours.
Take care, you deserve the best

12/07/06: Mátyás Vittmann - szmutyo@freemail.hu
Dear Jason! You are my favourite guitar player! Cacophony is an awesome band! I've never seen a talented musician like you!
You are one of my Gods!

hi jason, you are a real proof of supreme strength in the music and the most incredible guitarrist that i 've listened in my life. thanks for your strength. may you are asking for your self...who am i...well my name is max, i'm 22 years old, i live in chile where i study musical composition and acoustic guitar, my composition work's are about latin american music, about the folklorean music. but when i was a child, my father introduced my self on the rock way, so i have in my musical influences a great mixture of syles. speaking about my father, he's name is juan,. he has ALS, and a i find in in him, my inspiration, but not for the music, an inspiration to live and construct the life, day by day. sometimes, i feel a little lost, because i don't find anybody to share this family experiencie. sorry my friend if my words sounds like a tired man. i'm a little sad, this's new for me. un abrazo amigo, tu eres una estrella de luz infinita que brilla por su fuerza.

29/06/06: deniz aydemir - deniz.gtr@gmail.com
I just wanted to say that your music, your life, the struggle, mozart 25th,speed metal symphony, serrana...YOU are an inspiration! I've learned a lot of good songs and techniques, but most importantly I've leared how to listen, and not give up no matter what...it used to be very difficult to find your music here in Turkey so I've worked very hard to find your albums... thank you for everthing!! you are the best!!

21/06/06: Sergio Lorenzo - cypotman@gmail.com
No words... no coments... nothing to say never said.
All you're doing talks itself...
All you're fighting shows what you're made of...
And all I can do is... nothing
Because all you've done it
yes... you've done it.


07/06/06: Theo - Tenmagicfingers7@aim.com
Jason, I just wanted to say that your music is by far the greatest thing I have ever heard in my life. Whenever I listen to any of your songs I am completely mesmerized. I'm sure you get this all the time, but keep looking forward. You are an inspiration to everyone who has ever heard you play. I'm sure you will be remembered as a G~D of the guitar forever. You will play again, I have faith in that. Thanks for everything.

02/06/06: Mike Dean - mikedean7lc@aol.com
Jason your incredible. Your music has inspired me throughout the past several years and I want you to know that your music has given me something that Ive never had, complete tranquility. I wish you the best of luck and stay stong, you will always be close in my thoughts.

01/06/06: Heather - Hebz2512@hotmail.com
You such an inspiration- a true example of a beautiful mind!
god bless xo

31/05/06: Joe Bissell - joe_r_biss@yahoo.com
Jason, it is hard to kn ow exactly what to say to you. You give me hope in mankind, with your musical brilliance as well as your amazing ability to over come any obstacle, no matter how huge. I am now a lead giutar player and just recently considered giving up. Then i saw a video of you playing the Serrana Arpeggios and heard your story and it gave me hope. I though "after all he's been through I have no right to quit". Jason, you have hearn this countless times, but here it is once more. You have been a huge inspiration to me and I believe you always will. Your illness is in my opinion the greatest loss in rock and roll ever.

20/05/06: Szymon - szymonwoj1@o2.pl
I would talk and talk about the adventures I have experienced through your music, but not this time, Jason! Now I would like to ask you to be strong, to have faith in the Truth you are uncovering because we both know what exists behind the veil.

13/05/06: Acai, Tampin, Malaysia. - acai2002ad@yahoo.com
Jason Becker.. Fuckin' awesome. Tiada siapa dalam dunia ini yang dapat menandingi kehebatan "shredding" kamu. your shreds heal our soul. Get fuckin well, bro!

Oh my, you have no idea how much influence you have put into my music. You and EVH are my primary influences. YOUR A GOD! When I first heard you sweep, i never knew it was possible to do it that damn AMAZING! Your my idol, and I thank you so much for your contribution to the musical world. YOUR A GOD!

03/05/06: piero - piero187@hotmail.com
LONG LIVE THE KING!!, except for maybe alexi laiho there's still no guitar player that can beat u. dude i just need to play any of your songs to feel like playing the guitar for another 3 hours. and even tho u can't play anymore, u inspired me to keep going on whatever i do no matter how hard it is or even if they say it is impossible to accomplish. btw u just gained a new fan, a friend of mine listened to like 20 secs of a video of black star we found on google n she wants me to say hi, and that u r friggin awesome. well thats it for now, just a last thing, it will probably take me another 3 years to b fast enough to play black star :P but there is no impossible. ttyl man take care.

29/04/06: Hatem Kotb - metalideth_87@hotmail.com
Dear Jason. What can i say more about your musical talent?. Your sense, techniques. You just fit everything together in an amazing way. And for that, your music will never be forgotten. You have inspired tons of people from all around the world, and I as one of them am proud to say that i am one of them. May your days be the best.

"We beleive in you!"

27/04/06: dave - lionchamp29@hotmail.com
i cry listening to your music. I`m a good guitarist but your chord changes and melody are so beyond me. I want to encorporate some or your virtuosity. Its so mind boggeling.
You better come back like dave mustaine.

02/04/06: Ignacio - k_b_zeta@hotmail.com
You composed music like no one other. Your music was perfect.
you had the capacity to enter in my mind and make me feel like i had to make music.
You dont deserve this.
Someday you will play again.

31/03/06: Philip Long - previrtuoso@aol.com
Hey Jason, i just want u to know that you're one of my biggest insprirations, musically and spiritually, theres no one in the same arena when it comes to your balance of technique and emotion...your work on the song altitudes has pushed me to develope and discover my own voice on guitar. Thanx for showing that no matter what, at the end of the day a possitive attitude can make a world of difference.

21/03/06: Levi seth - levi_evo@yahoo.com.br
Your music gave tears and smiles...But this is it, for sure you will keep shining, as usual. :)

In portuguese:
É sem duvida uma grande inspiração, e vai continuar sendo...

jason y want to say you in my bad lenguaje expresion that you are the best guitarrist now a day because no one can make master pieces like you without playng and you can..and sincersly no one can play like you did so never give up if you die the music die so dont let it happen.....

18/03/06: JOHN MAYS - THE BAND@PAYLFACE.COM
I LOVED JASON BECKERS MUSIC FROM THE FIRST NOTE! MY GUITAR TEACHER GAVE ME CACOPHONYS FIRST ALBUM WHEN I WAS 14(NOW 33) AND IT WAS ALL OVER! I WORE OUT 3 PERPETUAL BURN CASSETTES AND 2 CDS.
I WILL NEVER GET TIRED OF IT.......JASON IS MY GOD!

16/03/06: Pieter B - piet3r@gmail.com
Jason Becker, You are the God of guitar and music in general. You are my greatest inspiration and I admire you like no other human being. Every time I listen to Air or any piece of the Perspective album (mainly Primal, Serrana, End of the beginning and Higher) I get tears in my eyes. I hope you heal soon and if not, live at least a happy life in the current circumstances. One day I will come visit you. I'm 19 now, and I too have some health problems, nowhere near your case but my hands have some arthiritis-like problem for about 3 years now, it's haunting me and making me unable to play properly, but I still try, and I'll never give up my love for music and composing. God bless you Jason Becker,

Pieter

26/01/06: Brendan Sloan - N/A
Jason, you're the most incredible person I've ever had the privilege to read about. I wish I could say "meet", but I haven't had that chance yet. Your incredible music and spirit inspire me so much I cannot express it with words. Your music will forever be a testament to your immense passion and emotion as a musician, and a person. I wish you all the best.

-- Brendan.

25/01/06: Leo Zuker - ringhal@hotmail.com
Jason,
I´ve been playing guitar for 10 years now, and you´ve really been one of the greatest sources of inspiration, both musically and spiritually. I´ve come down to problems in life, and by your teachings I´ve learnt that nothing can stop a person´s will. Your mind is the strongest weapon, thanks for the road you´ve opened for every musician, and it would be great if more people could know about you. From Chile I send the warmest of hugs. Keep on rocking forever.

21/01/06: Phillip Jones - Philajones@hotmail.co.uk
Jason,you are a guitar-GOD. You are one of the very few reasons i chose to play guitar rather than drums coz I listened to intense way you played and put all emotion into your playing. Words can't describe how incredibly sorry I am for your loss of physical state but I have bought every CD you've been recorded on to support you. If there IS a God, He will rid you of this disease tonight and then you can shred with the best of them again. Take care buddy. :)

I am more than just inspired than Jason. This guy is ultimately my guitar, and always will be. If you ever read this Jason, my respect and sadness go out to you.
You have written some beautiful music in my opinion. I only wish I posessed the skill to be able to play like you, and I doubt I ever will, but that doesn't mean I won't try and try harder.
Of course there are other people that you cna argue play just like you, but I don't believe they put anywhere NEAR the emotion you have put into your pieces. And that's what they are, beautifully constructed master works, every single one.
.. My only hope for you is a speedy recovery, and if I ever break into the music, part of my profits will be going into an ALS fund somewhere. I'm serious. :)
Live long, Jason.

With sincere gratitude,
Paul Mc Guinness, Ireland.

Listening to a masterpiece like The end of the beggining or watching the video clip were you play the Serrana arpeggios makes me wanna cry somtimes and that is the truth. You are one of the few musicians that can evolve such feelings for me. No matter what other people may say or think, I still think you are the greatest musicisian that has ever lived. Hope you'll get better and that you will be able to play again, that's one thing for sure I want to withness before I die...to sit infront of you and wath you play. Until then - Take care man!

I read your words on your web site this morning with tears rolling down my face - as a 35 year old now, I grew up listening to your music in my younger days - you were a true inspiration to me. If this world were fair, then you would not be going through this - but it's not, and to see the way in which you are dealing with it is remarkable...that's what touched me the most. And for the second time in my life, you are a true inspiration to me. Look at all of the heartfelt words these people have sent to you! You have touched so many people's lives, including mine. Best wishes to you and your family - stay strong of mind Jason, and be well. Paul.

Keep fighting you battle because only truly heroes can do what you have do; freeze a volcano, had a tornado in your hands, and touch the sun.
You ALWAIS be the best guitar heroe in history. I´m sure you strength will help you to reach that level again. METAL WARRIOR; I salute you, and will try to play the best i can.

When I saw there man, I got tears in my eye, I can't believe that this man is so strong in personality. I have the most deep respect for you Jason.

Jason, eres en verdad el más grande guitarrista del mundo; Yo empece escuchando grupos Heavys como Iron Maiden Black Sabbat etc Luego me interese por la guitarra pero lo hacia con el minimo interes asi que en los ensayos terminabamos alcoholizados y locos y no ensayabamos ni mierda. Paso el tiempo y al escuchar MALMSTEEN me senti identificado con el sonido y el sentimiento asi que tome la guitarra en serio. Pero al conocer tu música y al escuchar ALTITUDES fue como un shock que me dejo totalmente estremecido oir tanta velocidad, técnica pero con tanto sentimiento que segui buscando trabajos tuyos que resultaba muy dificil en mi pais BOLIVIA pero como Fan tuyo pude conseguir algunas cosillas más. Eso cambio todo para mi y al saber de la situación por la que tuviste que atravesar llegue a admirarte mucho más te doy gracias por la bella música que compusiste y que compones; y estoy seguro que en otra vida otro tiempo seguiras siendo el mejor guitarrista de todos los tiempos.
Millon de GRACIAS Y DIOS TE BENDIGA A TI Y A TU GUITARRA MARAVILLOSA.

lo que puedo decir es que jason becker, a sido mi maxima fuente de inspiración, sus discos son exelentes, no se compara con nada ni nadie, el es único, si tan solo ubiese seguido tocando, si ese maldito q le arrebató su legendaria guitarra, no lo ubiese atacado, ahora seria el mejor, su fama creo q duró sólo 4 años, imaginense como estaría ahora, fué y es una gran promesa (por lo menos para mi lo es), su corto pasar, quedó grabado en mis sentidos.

arriba Jason!!!!!, sigue componiendo aquellas melodias dignas de los mas selectos oidos, yo se que el nunca se dará por vencido, logrará salir, yo se que puede.....gracias por inspirarme...

Je voudrais rendre hommage à Jason Becker, qui a été une personne influente dans le choix de commencer cet instrument, il y a 13 ans.
Un guitariste talentueux certes, mais aussi d'une personnalité juste et admirable. On ne peut s'y tromper en écoutant les compositions que tu as écrites, qui reflète ta personnalité.

Je tenais à t'exprimer ceci, profitant de l'opportunité de ce forum. J'écoute tes disques et ca me fait un très très grand plaisir de pouvoir écrire ces quelques mots.

Je te souhaite tout le meilleur pour toi, tu es un grand homme parmis les grands.

Maybe you can hit the notes but no one in the world can play with the solid tecnique, beauty, and grace you played with. Good lukc in your struggle with ALS, if anyone can gte through it you can.

Jason, solo quiero decir que, tu eres mi idolo, mi modelo a seguir.. mi nombre es Jahudiel, hoy tengo 16 años y acabo de entrar a la preparatoria pero dejame decirte que a principios del 2004 cuando yo estaba en la secundaria estuve en un concurso de musica en el cual yo toqué la guitarra y llegué al primer lugar de mi escuela, despues al primer lugar de mi ciudad, luego al primer lugar de mi estado y llegué a quedar en 4to lugar de mi país (Mexico) en musica y primer lugar nacional en guitarra, todo esto me cambió la vida y he decidido dedicarme a la música lo que me queda de vida, pero todo esto no hubiera sucedido si nunca hubiera escuchado tu musica, tus canciones y tus solos, asi que, se puede decir que tu has cambiado mi vida.. eres mi dios, espero que leas esto (traducido a ingles) y me tomes en cuenta.. porque eres mi gran influencia, y recuerda: ROCK FOREVER!! =)

Jason Becker tu eres el mejor, siempre seras el mejor.
Yo soy de Chile y TU eres el idolo mio, y de mi hermano. Nosotros lloramos con tus temas, tu eres la persona elegida para la guitarra, yo creo que hay muy pocas personas que pueden lograr alcanzar esos 3 grandes puntos para ser un buen musico, que son Avilidad, Tecnica, Y sentimiento. si hay alguien que yo logro esos tres puntos, y aun sigue aprendiendo, eres tu, ya que independiente de como estes fisicamente, mentalmente eres un idolo, y un ejempk para muchos

Jason, for english class we had to write a paper about interprating songs, and what our favorite song was. It took me about a day to choose which song, but it didnt take any time to choose you. I ultimitly chose Go Off! beacause i really enjoy that song. After presenting my paper in front of the class, one girl asked if she could dontate money to ALS patients. Im now trying to start a school project to raise money for patients. I admire you so much for your positive outlook on life even in your situation. i wish you the best

Hi Jason, Im just so glad i found another guitarist that inspires me. Your story has really touched me and I wish you the best. Love you man. Take care.

12/09/04: Anthony Palma - ShredChico@Aol.com
Since the day my guitar teacher let me hear Perpetual Burn, to the day I listened to Mable's Fatal Fables after ordering your cd, i have been awestruck by all elements of your music. I've listened to Gilbert and Angelo, Malmsteen and Vai, Kotzen and Howe, and you rise above all of them.Your an incredible inspiration as a guitarrist and an all around human being. You are not unheard man, don't lose hope, because the lord is good, and will one day end this trial that you have been burdened with. Even thogh I've been playing guitar for only one year and a half, and im only 15, you are the greatest influence to my playing. God bless you Jason, que te vaya bien.

I don't know if you came from heaven, hell or somewhere out in space, but you are the best guitar player in the world. Thanks a lot for your amazing music and be the inspiration of thousands of mortals like me.
Best wishes,
Paco

09/09/04: Robert Seed from Nottingham, England - robert.seed@ntlworld.com
A few mere words cannot convey my admiration for you and your music, but here goes.
Jason, I think you are a truly unique person. You have an outlook on life that is both beautiful and sublime. To have endured such hardships yet remained positive and forward looking is humbling. I am so glad your spirit has found happiness in your family and friends. If I ever feel down or get frustrated about life, I think back to when I first heard your story and your determination spurs me on. With your attitude one could accomplish almost anything!
The other thing I would like to say is - BOY, CAN YOU PLAY THAT GUITAR OR WHAT! The first time I heard your CD I almost fell off my chair. I've been playing guitar myself since I was 15 and since then I had been looking for emotive, classical-based, intelligent guitar music - that rocks! You hit the nail on the head in what I was looking for. Your style of playing sounds like what I'm trying to achieve with my own playing, if only I had your flawless technique! Thanks for all the cool music over the years, everyone who hears me playing your CD's absolutely loves it. You are still reaching many people with your music. 'Perspective' was a stroke of genious by the way.
Thats my piece said. Good luck Jason and best wishes for the future.
Robert.

28/08/04: Augie - augie3322@aol.com
Jason, first off, the best of wishes go out to you as you face ALS. Everytime I hear your songs, I want to play guitar and get better; hopefully to make music as beautiful as yours some day. I'm only 18, so I have a long way to go, but I will remember your music and your courage always. You are truly one of the greatest guitar players to have ever played. Everytime somebody hears your music, it lives on another day. And everytime you inspire somebody else to play (and it happens ALOT), your music reaches so many more people through others. I would just like to thank you for inspiring me, and helping to make me a better musician and a better person. Anytime there is some sort of ALS function around my area, I donate whatever I can because of you. I think that is the best of all of your accomplishments, helping others beat ALS and setting an example of strength and courage.
- greatest of fans, Bryan Augustynowicz

Jason,(sorry for my english) i just want to say that every second i admire you more. The only think that i wish in this moment is to see you playing and going crazy with a guitar in your hands. You are in my heart and in heart of every one who have listened to your music.

I love u man!!!! Gods of rock and metal blees you.

25/08/04: Logan - ramon_cases@hotmail.com
Jason, your are a inspiration for those who lost hope because a worthless problem, you go beyond anything!! i know you'll get through this! Miracles are a common reality that God give us everyday, just if we really trust... Hope and Faith brother...;)

Well, no other way to say this, but you are my god.

19/08/04: Richard Pompano - Robpano221@aol.com
JASON,
Even though i am only 16 one thing you taught me you taught me is that a great guitarist doesnt only have to shred so fast that woodchips fall off the guitar or has to play hour long solos to be recognized. You taught me that heart and dedication is the key to being a great player, listening to your playing was a new begining for me because now i understand the heart you put in your playing. Even now when you submit segments in guitar magazine you have a positive outlook even though you have a horrible disease. The positive attitude you show in those aritcles show the heart you still have for the guitar even though your unable to pick it up.

Your freind forever,
Richard Pompano

Jason, thank you for letting me listen. you play with your heart and the world respects and admires you for every sacrifice you made for yourself, your family, friends. your music is a vast inspiration to me, maybe some day i'll have the inner peace you do to play as fully as i know i can. salute!

18/06/04: bryan - luczkiw@uiuc.edu
Jason,
you're playing is still as much an inspiration in 2004 as it was in the mid 1980's. maybe one day i'll have Seranna down, but simply playing the notes is a world of difference from playing with the beauty, grace, and poise that is your trademark. God bless you with your fight, never give up, your playing will live on through the hands and amps of the millions you inspired
all of my love
bryan

Jason, I'm not a guitarist, I know I was born to listen and not to play (it's a good job coz i can't hold more than 2 bars). Music has always affected me emotionally and non more so than the brightest colours and kaleidoscope of images and emotions that your wonderful playing has provided me.
I've never considered myself as a holy person, but I will say many prayers for you Jason. You are an inspiration to so many people and your courage and determination touches the very depths of my soul.

Jason,
I play guitar...like most here.
It is hard stuff man and you found a way to do it.
when I first heard you I was listening to cacophony thinking, "wow! Marty is better here than in megadeth!!" than I watched a video o.o;;;;;;;
I saw you do your serrana arpeggios on a clip you did at atlanta institute of music and I was freaking out.
I have been a religious listener ever since and I am starting to blaze the arpeggios...I will always hold you as the greatest...
not just playing but also your struggle...

everyone give it up for the best dude in the world, jason becker

Ese impetu que tienes tu, esa fuerza que tuviste, tal amor por la musica es algo que de ninguna manera podria ser pasado por alto a cualquier persona que escuche la musica, como Beethoven aun despues de surdo y muerto de asco por la vida hizo cosas que ningun ser humano podra hacer, asi te veo yo a ti...
Lucha hermano, lucha por eso que nos une a todos los que somos capases de llorar escuchando una melodia, o de pasar del odio total a la felicidad con tan solo escuchar una canción, eres unico hermano!

Forever Jason Becker!!!!!!!

Dearest Jason. Having heared your tribute album was being put together, I HAD to submit a track, as I have always found the music of yourself and Marty such a massive inspiration. I am a competant player, but GO OFF was the hardest thing I have ever, ever had to do. An old guitar teacher said to me once - If you inspire one person, you've done your job. I was inspired. so are all these people here and thousands more. That is something no-one can take away. God Bless you.

I´m just a single brazilian who admires your life and music (sorry for my terrible english). I´m not a musician, but I apreciate music, mainly rock and of course, guitar, and I know that u r one of the best musicians in the world. Perpetual Burn shows your perfect aproach on the guitar, but also an intense musicalship. Perspective seems to be a breath, a sensive display of musical feelings. Beeing so, I would like to say that u r friend for me, a guide of inspiration and strenght and will b 4ever in my mind.

Jason - I would like you to know, from deep within my heart and soul, I hold positive thoughts for you and always will. You have been a tremendous inspiration from the beginning (I still have a letter you wrote me back in 1988 - including the guitar pick you enclosed with the letter). I find your inspiration even more profound now. Be well my friend.

Yours,

Jason,
I'll never forget the show Cacophony did on the truck trailer in Minnesota. You and marty were playing your solos with your pants around your ankles. That was hilarious!. Peter Marino was the producer in the band I was in, Scream Parade you opened for you. We recorded at Prairie Sun and that is were I met you. We got to see Cacophony rehearse. Some great memories. Good luck and don't ever give up!

Jason, I wish You all the best. As You´re a guy with big talent and so much fighting spirit my thoughts are with You.
We were asked to participate on the tribute cd, but unfortunately timing problems couldn´t be solved. Just wanted You to know that there´s people over in Scandinavia that cares!
Keep rocking & best wishes! /B.J (Swedish hardrock band MILLION)
