Michael Jackson’s guitarists: EVH

Beat It  Michael Jackson always had great guitarists playing the parts for his songs. I will talk later of the funky/soul guitar work, now I want to focus on his rock songs, with rock guitars, and one of them is definitely Beat It. This classic track features Steve Lukather (Toto) playing the main riff,and Eddie Van Halen playing that incredible solo, that, in perfect Van Halen style, seems to create an alternative multi-dimensional world, that fits in the tune but it’s a different and indipendent creation, at the same time.

Tapping, slides, harmonics (those high guitar whistles-like sounds) legatos, vibratos,,,there’s everything that would make an 80s kid happy (and not only kids..and  not just n the 80s). The song survived the test of time, it has became a classic and well,this is my humble cover : Beat it Gio’s VanHalenish guitar cover
