    Beat It is fully tabbed in this month's Total Guitar magazine (UK Mag).

    Such a classic 80's moment - EVH and Micheal Jackson together. I always think of the Cafe 80's in Back To The Future 2!

    Anyways, I've found that the solo is easier to learn than expected. Lots of tapping - most of it is tapping actually. I can't actually play it right myself, but I'm not as lost as I am on other Eddie solos.

    In the same issue, there's a transciption of Shy Boy by DLR and Vai, and two different mentions of EVH in articles in the issue. There's been a lot of VH in the press lately, even in England. You get the feeling something is set to happen soon...

    Or then again, probably not.

    That beat it solo is a perfect example of how something great can come from a quick session. It's cool cause it's actually 2 solos spliced together, two of Ed's best solos ever! lol

    I've gotta pick up that magazine and relearn that solo. I learned it a few years ago, but gave away the tab and forgot most of it. All the time (especially alot lately) people are like "play Beat It for me." So I go into the main riff and they say "no man not that, the solo." Damn, I really gotta get that mag!
