Animated Beat It (Main) tab by Michael Jackson on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This song is in D tuning - i.e. from standard E tuning, every open string is tuned down by 2 notes to:

Low D:G:C:F:A:D

The majority of the song is a few simple riffs. However, the solo is very hard indeed - don't bother learning it unless you are skilful enough yet - it's top level difficulty. As for the rest of the song - all the main riffs are only a difficulty level 3 or lower.

Here are all the song parts you need:

Riff 1

Riff 2

Riff 3

Solo (needs whammy bar and fingers of flame)

That's all the main song parts - some pretty simple stuff there (especially riffs 2 and 3). We'll look at the funky fills next.
