Same boat :'-(
I constantly think that whatever we do, whatever other artists and his friends do, is not enough for Jason, and I mean that he deserves more and our best efforts
Every time a new message appears in this topic my heart skips a beat.
That Ritchie Allan cover almost blew out my ear drums when I opened the video, but it's a solid cover
Richardson isn't human, that was the cleanest cover of those sweeps I've ever heard.
I feel like showing his music to new people is something I will be doing forever.
Herman Li has been doing charity events on Twitch for Becker recently, the next one is 6pm eastern time tomorrow (April 7th) with Stevie T. https://www.twitch.tv/hermanli
Maybe innovators like Becker existed precisely BECAUSE of the lack of generic, modern resources. Most of my students can't even tune a guitar by ear; when I was a kid, we had no choice.
And the choice I made was to play out of tune for forever.
I didn't really start training my ear until we were doing a cover show for Dismember. The tabs were both wrong and most just flat out didn't exist. Also because they used HM-2's it was insane trying to learn the songs. But we did it... 9 songs... now my ear is pretty good.
Yeah it's weird, one of the only guitar skills I have is being able to actually tune a guitar in multiple different tunings without a tuner or reference.
When you say this, do you mean that it's actually in tune with a tuner (basically perfect pitch), or do you mean that you're just in tune with yourself? I've had entire band practices where there was no tuner to be found and we all just tuned to each other, and it worked out just fine...but the moment we tried to jam to a recording, we were very very "off".
At pitch. I've got a pretty good ear for E and C. I've done both, just tune close to others, and also tune up to damn near exact pitch.
Herman Li is live: https://www.twitch.tv/hermanli He is playing all kinds of videos telling Jason's Story right now.
Wait, you didn't have a landline phone? I used that in my childhood to tune my guitar, 440hz!
I never realized I could until I changed the strings on 4 of my dad's guitars and couldn't find the tuner to double check them before I put them up.
That's the Peavey, the original numbers guitar. Thumbprint and message, sticker behind bridge, two tone bridge and headstock all identify it.
He only had 2 Hurricanes, the Speed Metal Symphony white one and the Perpetual Burn blue one. Then there's the 2 original Carvins, the Go Off pink with stickers and the Serrana video blue flame.
He signed with Peavey some time after that before getting sick with the intention of a signature model, I believe, producing the numbers guitar. Then Ibanez and Jackson made versions for him at some point. The Paradise guitar was available to buy for a few years, and then he went back to Carvin/Kiesel for these newer signature models.
See, that headstock looks like the Hurricane headstock, and not like the Peavy headstock I've seen on their Numbers guitar:
The one we see EVH playing looks like the headstock is more hurricane-ish.
I wish so many of the photos of these old guitars didn't have the headstock cut off.
He's playing this guitar. It says Peavey on the headstock.
It's great to see so many players coming together to help Jason. Are the past Herman Li Twitch streams worth watching? Or do you have to pay for them?
Edit: You have to subscribe to watch them.
