    New Jason Becker Album

    ason Becker unleashes new album and single. Both are stuffed with guitar heroes
    By Fraser Lewry a day ago Classic Rock



    Becker's upcoming album Triumphant Hearts features Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Neal Schon, Steve Morse, Paul Gilbert and many more...


    Jason Becker has announced details of his new album, Triumphant Hearts. It's released on December 7, and was funded by a Pledgemusic campaign that raised $115,000 to cover recording costs.

    Becker has also released the first track from the album, the nine-minute epic Valley Of Fire, which features contributions from "The Magnificent 13", better known as guitarists Steve Vai, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Gilbert, Neal Schon, Marty Friedman, Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias IA Eklundh, Greg Howe, Jeff Loomis, Richie Kotzen, Gus G, Steve Hunter and Ben Woods. Full tracklist details below.



    Other musicians featured in the album include violinist Gluaco Bertagnin, cellist Hiyori Okuda, Act Of Defiance guitarist Chris Broderick, Guthrie Govan, Uli Jon Roth and Trevor Rabin.

    In 1990 Becker was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) a week after joining David Lee Roth's band, but still managed to record one album with the band before being replaced. Ever since, despite declining health (Jason can no longer walk, talk or play guitar, and needs assistance to breathe), he has continued to make music, and in 2012 was the subject of the documentary, Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet.

    Becker communicates using a system devised by his father that allows him to spell out musical notes and chords as well as words. This information is then fed into a computer, where the parts are edited before the music charts are sent to his collaborators.

    "Some people feel sorry for me,” says Becker, “and I understand that. I really feel lucky though. I don’t miss playing guitar anymore. I’m sure that’s out of necessity, but I am grateful for so much more. I am surrounded by loving people, and I can still make music."

    For more information about ALS, which kills six people per day in the UK and remains incurable, visit the Motor Neurone Disease website.

    He used to be too shreddy neo classical for me back in the day but recently any time I see a YouTube of him his playing is just amazeballs plus he seems to be a super nice dude.

    Gilbert put on a clinic in Akron just after he left Mr. Big. Had a couple Laney stacks and played to an ADAT. Got an autograph somewhere here in the archives.

    I'd like to try that guitar but I'm not sure it would suit me. Quite a wide neck and a single coil at the bridge on the non custom one. I'm curious though.

    The neck is fat compared to the Wolfgangs but not terribly uncomfortable. It's a heavy guitar though. It does balance nice on your leg while sitting.

    I've seen a guy on eBay who sells Fireman and Iceman bodies that will take a Wizard neck. Load it up with your favorite pickups and go!

    Gilbert's fingers are weirdly long especially his ring and pinky fingers. That makes me assume that a neck that suits him might not be so good for mere humans...
