Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' Sounds Wondrously Funky On Acoustic Guitar

There may not be any flashy dance moves involved, but this Michael Jackson cover probably would've impressed the King of Pop himself.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, guitarist Miguel Rivera slays a cover of the hit "Beat It" on acoustic guitar, mimicking the sound of various different instruments, as well as Jackson's vocals, with only his guitar. Rivera's breathtaking cover was shared just days before the sixth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.

Watch as Rivera skillfully strums, beats and plucks his guitar to channel the song's vocal melody, drums, bass and other instruments.

The cover is so darn good, it's got us moonwalking for joy!
