People can be very kind…
I work nights in an inner city treatment center for kids in Minneapolis, and one of the things a couple of us do on break is get together and watch “Becker.” Having been playing for over 20 years now myself, I started saying, “I’ve really gotta track down who this cat is playing these fine blues licks,” a few months ago, and my coworkers are sick of me talking about it every night. So, here I finally am.
All that to say, beautiful work… soulful, and quite a graceful touch! If you ever get the time, I’d love to know what your guitar & setup was for that session…
Take Care & Keep Up the Great Work.
I’m 17 and live in Eastern Maryland. I am big in to guitar playing and have been very much so for about the past two years. I particularly love classic metal, classic rock, blues, and classical music. But to get to the point of my message, I just wanted to let you know that I have heard your work on Becker and just wanted to let you know how amazed I was at the greatness of your playing.
I was absolutely taken with your playing and have always wondered who was the master behind the licks. Props to you my friend and for keeping lead guitar alive.
I’ve been playing blues in a similar style for around twenty years and when I heard your stuff it reminded me of the first time I heard Jimi, SRV, Robben Ford etc.
Jeez, you don’t play that thing at all do ya? Surely there are 1000s of poor chumps slaving away trying to play who’ll never get it because you stole all the talent and tone. Gonna call the police on ya. Great stuff man. I always wondered who was doing all that damage on the “Becker” theme. Bravo.
I just wanted to congratulate you on your score for Threshold, the film was amazing and your score complimented it perfectly. I scored Bag, and I saw your film at the screening last night, it deserved every award it won, including Best Score. I’m looking forward to hearing more of your work in the future.
I’m Luca from Italy and I usually watch on TV the sitcom “Becker” and I would like to know who is the guitarist that plays in the sitcom theme ’cause he’s very good and has a great blues feeling. Ciao.
…the release of “This Is Us”, (Keyshia Cole’s) own power-pop combo of Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” and Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry”. If her label is smart enough to give the song proper promotion, the track will inevitably dominate R&B, adult contemporary and pop radio and turn her into the household name she should be.
Jason, if possible could you give me some details of the set-up used to get the killer guitar sound you used for the Becker theme music? I’ve been playing for some years and its some of the best blues stuff I’ve heard. Many Thanks.
