Watch the The Force online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Funk Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Steve Lukather played on more records than most of us actually own, but a stand out session for Luke is his deft work on a certain mega-selling release from a recently departed icon who changed the pop landscape while moon walking. Alongside one of Eddie's best solos (that ironically finds him in a rare sideman role), Luke played the rest of what's heard in "Beat It", guitar-wise. The snippet we have before us throws the 4th at us once more, this time set in all out rock mode albeit with major groove. The sheer stones exuded by this testosterone-fueled funk/rock moment once more proves Steve Lukather is truly a force to be reckoned with. On the Thriller trivia tip: Did you know Steve Lukather played on not just "Beat It", but "Human Nature" as well?
