                             Beat It - Michael Jackson

E-mail:
This is a way to play the Beat It solo that differs slightly from the original, but 
retains the same attitude.
Th:tapped harmonic and Fb: full step bend. Follow the directions in parentheses for the 
whammy bar stuff is.
The third bar is a way to play the massive stretch legato in an easier way.
Hope this helps you guys out, leave questions in the comments!
Tuning: Half step down
