How to Shred Like Jason Becker: 3 Essential Concepts

I had tons of fun recording this video, it was definitely one of my favorite ones to record. Jason Becker is a legendary guitarist known his incredible speed and most of all his ridiculously clean sweep arpeggios. I have been a huge fan of his music since I was a teenager and it was way fun getting to play some material that emulates his style a bit.

In the video the different topics discussed are scales (major, minor, the modes, symmetrical), sweep picking (different shapes and how to use them) and the use of expressive vibrato and whammy bar.
