Jason Becker is an amazing player. He was stricken with illness and has not played in quite some time. Yet he is still respected and revered by entire guitar community. He was breaking new ground nearly every time he picked up the guitar. He had enormous skill and technique but also a great sense of harmony and song craft. He is, as most know, wheel chair bound and unable to speak. However, that doesn't keep him from creating music and sharing it. In this video, a close friend of his shares some of his killer sweeps and plays them nice and slow so we can see what is going on. I'm trying some of them myself. I'm not a "sweep guy" but this vid has given me inspiration. I hope it inspires you guys as well.

The guy who plays the guitar in that lesson has a great lesson series called In the Style of Jason Becker. It's nearly 5½ hours long and it is well worth it, in my opinion. It comes in 3 volumes.







Here are the links to the store where you can buy it:
Vol. 1, Vol. 2 and Vol. 3
