People of AGC, I've came to you today to ask you a question.
Here's the thing, I'm new in a band which mostly play punk rock, alternative, and some other similar things. We're bunch of amateurs and "sadly" they picked me as a lead guitarist. So we're covering up Beat It song by Fall Out Boy ft. John Mayer which is a Michael Jackson Jackson song(despite the fact the I don't like Michael Jackson, no offense to his fans though, and I reallllllllllly hate Fall Out Boy, but it's fun playing it)
The problem is I can't find the right tab for the solo and I can't get it right by ear. I'm supposed to get at least a nice solo even if it's not same as the song's solo, just something close to it and I have no idea what to do and if I wanna plan Van Halen solo(which is in the Michael Jackson original song), it just wont sound right on Fall Out Boy cover. Help!

from personal experience in handling Fall Out Boy material, I would say that the original is miles better... I just hate FOB a lot and the 'cover' if you would call it that, the solo, I was not impressed by it, I prefer the original song and the original VH solo.
Honestly I would learn the Van Halen solo, because it is just a better fit to the mood of the song IMO.
But its all up to you my friend.
