Awesome lesson, finally I found out how Eddie played that solo
this is really great lesson. I remember when Jennifer Batten was showing this solo in our classroom. Well done.
@Marcus: this my best guess about how Eddie played that solo
@Emir: where? when? details!
Hey, I dont know what's the problem, I cant see the guitar pro part, plz sent me a guitar pro tab for beat it solo plz,
TYhe 70bpm backing track is too slow when first putting it together...
the 130bpm is too fast..
Add a backing track in the middle somewhere...perhaps 85-90bpm????
welcome to my Beat It solo lesson.
What can I say about this solo...
I guess there is no guitar player in the world that doesn't know it. It was recorded by Eddie Van Halen in 1982 allegedly in one take.
Rock guitarist Eddie Van Halen, lead guitarist of hard rock band Van Halen, was then requested to add a guitar solo. When initially contacted by Jones, Van Halen thought he was receiving a prank call. Having established that the call was genuine, Van Halen recorded his guitar solo free of any charge. "I did it as a favor", the musician later said. "I was a complete fool, according to the rest of the band, our manager and everyone else. I was not used. I knew what I was doing - I don't do something unless I want to do it." Van Halen recorded his contribution following Jones and Jackson arriving at the guitarist's house with a "skeleton version" of the song. Fellow guitarist Steve Lukather recalled, "Initially, we rocked it out as Eddie had played a good solo—but Quincy thought it was too tough. So I had to reduce the distorted guitar sound and that is what was released."
Thanks wiki :)
I will break the solo into 11 parts and, in the text beneath each vid, I will explain everything I think you should know so you can learn this solo.
I hope you will enjoy this lesson.
Let me know what you think.
