In this Beat It guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play my instrumental arrangement of Michael Jackson's "Beat It".
The first video below will be a full performance video demonstrating how the arrangement sounds. I have taken all of Michael Jackson's vocal parts and transcribed them for guitar.
I have used the original Eb tuning. Those notes are (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).
Those vocal melodies work really well on the guitar and are based mostly around the E minor pentatonic scale that we all know and love.
In the second video below, I will demonstrate how to play all of those vocal lines on the guitar.
The remaining sections of the song, including the intro and Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo can be found in my earlier "Beat It" lesson where I taught the song the way it was originally recorded.
I hope you guys enjoy this one! It is a lot of fun to play once you get it under your fingers.
