    Short but sweet ED left his mark on that one bigtime! Funny thing when I saw Michael Jackson playing Beat It live (on TV) and his guitarist couldn't do that lead justice, it wasn't even Steve Lukather! I wonder if Ed was thinking if he would ever play that lead for Jackson live??

    (of course the only reason I watched it was to see that lead part) he he he....

    The guy who played it on the TV special was Slash. While I think Slash has a good style all his own, his solo sucked in Beat It. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] It didn't do the song justice at all.

    P.S. - Here's the Beat It tab.

    Hey ScottRoberts I could not get that link for the tab to work!

    I bet Eddie had the spot light for his lead over Michael in those shows!!!

    Hmmm...for some reason it won't work as a link from here. Just copy and paste this URL into your web browser:

    http://msnhomepages.talkcity.com/Sta...n51/beatit.txt

    It should work...

    I was in Wal-Mart today... and stores like that usually have "elevator" music playing... but it was cool to hear Beat It... of course I had to stop my shopping for a moment just to listen to the solo. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    And beyond the horizon.... a sound was heard.

    Thanks guys that solo rocks and the rhythm part (Lukather) is really easy so just got to do my best at that crazy lead part. To me it always sounds so spontaneous, like Ed was at a concert sound check!
