Adam Rafferty – “Rock With You” – Michael Jackson – Solo Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar

Greetings! I had been working on this one now for a few weeks prior to MJ’s untimely death yesterday. What a drag!

Thanks to Youtube I have fallen in love with his music all over again these past couple of years…since the original “Billie Jean” video I made. Tune after tune, I find MJ to be an amazing genius of music. Really!

It was only fitting to video and upload this song today, as it was the next on my list anyway! This is my musical prayer for MJ’s soul, and for the comfort of his family who must be grieving terribly.

I hope you enjoy this music.

MJ You had a tough life, abusive parents, no childhood to speak of and lived with unbelievable stress and emotional damage. May your soul find peace and rest. (Farrah and Ed – may you find rest too…what a week this has been!)

Thank you for the grooves, the melody, the dancing and the soundtrack of my childhood. So many smiles, happy times and parties – even tears, made life feel like “technicolor” thanks to you, MJ.

I played this song on a Cole Clark Fat Lady Guitar (FL 2AC), and recorded audio on a Studio Projects C3 Mic into Digital Performer.

Enjoy, and contact me anytime!!!!
