Guitar Teacher Plays Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ And It’s Mesmerizing


Ever heard a Michael Jackson song played so majestically on a guitar? Spanish guitarist Miguel Rivera is a guitar teacher who has spent most of his life making sure others learn how to properly play the instrument. This time he wanted to share his talent with the world, so he came up with a mesmerizing arrangement of ‘Beat It’ by Michael Jackson.

When you see him play the song, it’s like you’re hearing more than one guitar. This particular arrangement is played using a special technique called fingerstyle, a method that calls for plucking the strings directly. Covering “Beat It,” is not easy and you know people is going to judge and criticize every single bit they don’t think sounds right. But Rivera managed to blow everyone’s mind by playing all three facets of the song together with just his one guitar.
