Michael Jackson — Beat It (the Real Way) bass tabs

ok for those of you who believe that you must tune your bass to drop d for this
song ... listen to wut you are playing and then try and match it to0 the song
... no dice..tone deaf little weasles..

anyway here is Beat it the right way.

Chorus riff/intro riff


ok now here is the verse .. again i dont see why people insist on making things
harder by sliding up the fret board but here is how i do it.


play that 2 times then go into the chorus riff

ok now after the second chorus the line goes like this




then it goes back into the chorus riff for the rest of the song until it fades
out ..

and that is how you play beat it

So in the intro why go to the fifth fret on D when you can just go to open G? Totally agree on the tuning down E to D. Dumbest thing ever.

Tone deaf? You've got the wrong tuning (should be Eb/half-step down), you've put extra notes in the main riff and the bridge is actually all E-flat, not its octave.

Just sayin'.
Yeah, poster is an arrogant jackass. The tuning isn't drop d, it's tuned a half step lower than standard (Eb Ab Db Gb). If you (op) are actually playing this in standard tuning while listening to the recording and you think it sounds right, YOU are the one who is tone deaf.

Yall gotta stop being salty and just play around with the riff till it sounds good
spent probably like half an hour looking at this, I'm 100% sure its dropped to Eb Ab Db Gb, if it is, the tab is great thanks. not sure what all the fuss was about lol
