This is a great Michael Jackson piece... Most tabs on the net were wrong and 
aggravated me so I decided to tab it out myself with the real chords used. 
They can be played in this octave or an octave lower.

Riff 1 - Intro & Verse ( The (0)'s are ghost notes… Play them if u think they 
sound good)Just not sure about that Bm!? 


      E5	A5	      Emaj    Bm    EMaj
e|------------(0)---(0)---(0)---------(0)--(0)-----|
B|------------14-14-14-14-14----12----12---12------|
G|----9\------14-14-14-14-14----13----11---13------|
D|----9\------14-14-14-14-14----14----12---14------|
A|----7\-------x--x--x--x--x-----x-----x----x------|
E|---(0)-------------------------------------------|

Pre-chorus - The little staccato chords played at the end of each phrase is 
A5 (Kickin Dirt in my eye…)

      A5          	 B5
e|--------------	--------------|
B|--------------	--------------|
G|----2-----2---	--4-----2-----|
D|----2-----2---	--4-----2-----|
A|----0-----0---	--2-----0-----|
E|--------------	--------------|

The Heavier Part - Let the Low E5 ring out when you're strumming it... 
and play the higher Em staccato.

      E5	   Em
e|----------------12-x-x-12-----|
B|----------------12-x-x-12-----|
G|----------------12-x-x-12----*|
D|----2-x-x-2-2----------------*|
A|----2-x-x-2-2-----------------|
E|----0-x-x-0-0-----------------|

Rap Part - Play this A7 chords with a funky rhythm…You'll have to listen to get the timing right...


e|----15-x-x-(14)--x------15-x-x-15--x---|
B|----14-x-x-(13)--x------14-x-x-14--x---|
G|----14-x-x-(13)--x------14-x-x-14--x---|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|


Final two Chords - Let the last Chord Ring Out

e|------------------|	
B|------------------|	
G|---x----x-----9---|	
D|---4----8-----9---|	
A|---2----6-----7---|

hey homie.. try this pattern for the main riff:
||: Esus E | Esus9 E :||
only the top note changes: A to G# to F# to G#
bottom two notes stay the same: B and E

the whole riff is a variation on a E chord...

Peace
