Having not being able to play guitar for over a week and still feeling pretty crappy about EVH’s passing, I fancied trying to learn and hack my way through the Beat It solo (one of my all time favourites). I recorded my 1st proper attempts on the camera as I’m trying to video log my playing more. I’m also trying to get rid of some awful ‘red light’ syndrome that has snuck up on me over the last few years (never used to be an issue) and thought it would be good to be brave and post it for the sake of it.
Its not great - wrong notes/phrasing, shite vibrato and far from what I want it to sound like, but its been fun to not take things too seriously. Its gone midnight here so also recording at super low volume so audio on my phone is particularly lacking.
Hopefully, I’ll keep at this one and post any progress - maybe one day I’ll do it some justice!
