I actually found this guy in the local newspaper, apparantly he lives somewhere in the same very small town as me.

I LOVE this tune, he is 17 or 18 years old..

Jason Becker was an awesome player, no doubt. Has been an inspiration to me many times. He's still an awesome musician, though he's movement these days are limited.

Yeah, Becker himself is ill... This was "just" a tribute by someone in Koopid's hometown wink.gif
I heard Steve Vai and Paul Gilbert and many other guitarists joined together to make a CD where all profits were given to Becker to help pay for his medical treatment.

I see I misunderstood, I thought it was a video in which Jason played becaue I didn't watch the video.. wink.gif .the age of 17 just primed in me because Jason was also seventeen and played like a God...but now I watched it...this guy seems to follow in the steps of Jason - also such an awesome young player Incredible !!!

I talked to him on Myspace... He also composes his piece by what sounds good to him. He said he sometimes looks at scales to compose his pieces. But, this piece he had none in mind when the wrote it. His tone was a lot like Jason's (Vibrato, phrases etc.), especially in the beginning. This was a really good find biggrin.gif!
