Man, you lucky dog! But it couldn't have gone to someone more deserving--I'm glad you had the opportunity! I cracked up at your story about taking a picture with Jason. :D The guy has a great personality and fantastic demeanor.

Post Re: JASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you guys. :)

I wish you could've all met him too. It really felt like a dream the entire time.

Maybe some more random tidbits...

Even though Jason's house is small, it is very cozy. Where he sits, he could see a very beautiful view of the bay and the shoreline (Richmond is on the other side of San Fransisco, across the bay). They live among the top of the rolling hills of the bay area.

There was a camera crew there filming. I hope the crappy stuff I played doesn't make it into the documentary but haha oh well. My fingers felt like jelly. They were young guys from the UK. I think the documentary will be out sometime in the next year.

He's a humongous football fan, there were tons of little football helmet things on the wall.

That blue carvin that Jason kissed, I got a picture of me kissing it too! My friend Bronson who is left, got to kiss the side of the neck that had never been kissed, so that was super cool! They told us a some of the history of some of the guitars, like how the perpetual burn cd cover guitar (the blue one with colored pickups) actually wasn't used to record the album.

I think Jason himself is a cat person, as he owns 2 of them. The family had 3 dogs. 2 really big ones (not sure what they were), and a beagle.




Hey guys, if you want to donate, here's the website. They still have a ways to go to hit their goal for funds for the movie, but they're almost there. Tell everyone you know. It would really help him a lot.

Also, check out the trailer for it. There's some very special and awesome never before seen footage in it, make sure you watch it!!

It's on the bottom of the page here.

Lucky you! Thanx for sharing. I gave a small amount of money for the funding campaign, Perpetual Burn: The Story of Jason Becker, not enough to meet Jason I'm afraid. Can't wait to see the movie!

That looks like it will be an amazing movie!

A couple of questions for you, Bri:

His girlfriend is still the one & only Seranna?

How were the guitars you played set up, i.e. strings, action, etc?

No, he and Serrana broke up a long time ago.

His guitars felt fine. Really nice, if the strings weren't ridiculously old. The action was medium low, and he has 9's on his guitars.

By the way, Paul was supposed to be on the bill for the concert, but from what I heard he couldn't make it. Hope he can shed light on this sometime.

Huh... that's odd. Hope Paul's going okay.


Was the live show recorded/will it be on that DVD?

Wow....glad your visit went well. Honeslty wouldnt know how to act around such a guy. :o

I'm sure he was impressed with anything you played. It probably made him really happy a younger generation is into his music. I hope he knows that we still listen to his music. \m/

Act? He played in front of him. PG was intimidating but this is a whole new level of scary. Try doing your best while knowing that the guy in front of you could take any bad lick you play and turn it into a musical masterpiece in his mind.

Haha yeah man, that's what it's like. Paul is awesome and intimidating but in no way did I feel like I forgot how to play in front of him.


In front of Jason...it was like all my fingers turned into flacid penises.

I think you need to make that quote your new signature. :lol:

I couldn't imagine trying to play in front of Jason or PG. I'm not that good of a player to begin with, add in the pressure of playing in front of a guitar hero and the end result will not be pretty.
