Backwards Rock: It Beat

Well, we’ve reached the tenth installment of Backwards Rock. Crazy how a simple idea could get this far and yet still not feel finished, huh? Believe me, I have quite a few more ideas hanging around. So, what should we tackle for the tenth track? Of course – the King of Pop’s first (incredibly successful) attempt at a rock song. Here ya go – the main riff to “Beat It”… backwards.

It Beat

I skipped those weird seven synth notes at the beginning of the original. Don’t wanna waste your time too much… This one turned out kinda weird, but I think it still works. Placing the big accents on the off-beat can really mess with these things – I had to tab it out in Guitar Pro to make sure I was playing it right. Enjoy, let me know what you think, and I’ll see you next time.
