In this video guitar lesson series you will learn how to play Michael Jackson’s classic “Beat It” note-for-note.
The opening guitar riff to this song is known by literally billions of people around the world. Who knew the King Of Pop would also write one of the most memorable guitar riffs of all time. All of the rhythm guitar parts to this song can be attempted by ANY level of guitarist. This song is just so accessible to anyone.
Of course the guitar solo is a whole different story. 😀 The epic guitar solo for “Beat It” was performed by Eddie Van Halen. About 4 seconds into the solo, anyone would know that. Eddie Van Halen performed this solo free of charge as a favor to Michael Jackson. He probably didn’t realize at the time that it would go down as one of the greatest guitar solos ever written. Of course, that is all in a days work for the great Eddie Van Halen.
Eddie Van Halen really does pull out all the tricks in this solo, from the tapping, to the wide stretches, whammy bar work and tap harmonics, it is all here broken down in an easy to understand format. Have Fun!!
Thanks! Carl Brown…
