Ultimate-Guitar.com readers voted on their top guitarists for 2018 and Jason Becker made the list.

10. Jason Becker

The legacy Jason Becker left for the new generation of guitar players is priceless. And despite the difficulties he faces living with ALS, nothing was able to stop him in composing new material. Celebrating music, Mr. Becker gave us a new gift this year, an album titled “Triumphant Hearts.” And it is indeed a triumph of music, with various guitar masters putting Jason Becker’s ideas into work, including Marty Friedman, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Greg Howe, and many others.
