Thanks very much for posting that, it was great! :D

Loomis had yet to fully convince me, but that was a better version of that tune than I'd ever hoped to hear. I knew he was a big Becker fan, it really looks like he just sat down and played through it, which is quite an achievement, even if he's not got the vibrato quite the same as Jason....

I totally agree bro... There is a part in that song, a couple minutes in, when the tempo abruptly speeds up and Becker just starts ripping the most incredibly SCARY ASS sweeps at a furious pace... So very rare when you hear someone who is so incredibly gifted technically, who can, at the same play in such a melodic way that it carries the whole song. Not just some wanker widdling away.. It actually had melodic weight when he would play these superhuman arpeggios.

Gotta tip my hat to Jason Becker... The guy reached the top of the mountain with the greatest of ease... What a shame that all that was taken away from him.. I often wonder just how good he would have become if he was still able to play.
