Beat It – Solo Guitar Arrangement (Music Video of the Week)
Music Video of the Week, 8 Aug 2016
I decided to start working on this arrangement because it was a great challenge. When you listen to the chorus of the original song, you can hear the main riff (recorded by Steve Lukather) sounding together with the Michael’s vocal melody and, of course, drums, bass and other instruments. My objective was to play all of these parts together: the main riff, the vocal melody and the percussion part. I had to find the proper tuning and make good use of the harmonics but in the end, I got it. The tapping part is to remark on the great solo that Eddie Van Halen recorded for this song.
Hope you like it!
