Miguel Rivera y Miguel Jackson

July 16, 2015

“Beat It,” written by Michael Jackson, performed by Spain’s Miguel Rivera.  Video by Federico Ryll.

“The thing that makes Rivera’s cover great is that he manages to use a rapid-fire combination of drumming, slapping, tapping, plucking, and strumming to play all the song elements at the same time: vocal melody, lead riff, and drum and bass lines.”

— Timothy McGrath, Global Post
