... Great song:

... Written by Jason after ALS took away his ability to play, so virtuoso blues-rock player Michael Lee Firkins was asked to perform it. The lead guitar sounds very M.L.F., but the song itself sounds like Becker's later pieces (because it is).

That's just great! And I can't help thinking how is it possible for Jason to get the music out withouthis guitar. Fantastic!

Listen to Marty Friedman's cover of Becker's "Black Stallion Jam" for something really good in that style.

You can hear the much longer version on Becker's "Perspective" album.
