So many great guitarists online, so little time: The internet is full with great talents and almost everyday you can come across a musician that could really inspire you. Today, If you have a couple of minutes, you really don't want to miss this acoustic guitar version of Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' played by Miguel Rivera. Just play it.
"I decided to start working on this arrangement because It was a great challenge", Rivera explains on his YouTube channel, "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 this 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".
