Beat It

Beat It
2016
OK, I'll stick my hands up! I went a bit OTT with the guitar on this one! Watch out Eddie Van Halen, the jazz guy's got overdrive too! My version is not as rocky as Jacksons, it's peppered with jazz chords rather than rock riffs. See if you can spot the Earth, Wind and Fire horn section parts. From a guitar players point of view the original had one of the top 5 guitar solos of all time. On this occasion I didn't bother to learn it note for note, just the spirit of it (so loads of fretboard tapping). I do a second solo later on, which is pure me! It is the third single from Jacko's sixth solo album, Thriller (1982).
