Jason Becker Tribute: Guitarist Chris Mike Performs "For Jason" —Video

Guitarist Chris Mike has posted a one-man performance video for his new song, "For Jason."

The track, which appears on Mike's new instrumental album, Not Just Lipstick On a Pig, is a tribute to Jason Becker.

Best of all, Becker has heard the track and seen the clip — and he approves! "Wow, this is absolutely fantastic," Becker said. "I love it and am honored he did it for me. It is so clean and creative. He is great!"
