And as a guitar player I thought I had problems - Jason's story is inspirational to say the least. Plus the musicianship is fun to watch. Great insite from some famous axe slingers....

Awesome documentary of a guy that you have probably never heard of. Prodigy was a word made for people like this, and unfortunately, also, tragedy. But in the end it is the story of the human spirit triumphing over pretty adverse circumstances. If you like documentaries about musicians, then you'll probably like this one. P.s. He's a local boy too.
