That’s what this group from Denmark uses to cover an amazing catalog of famous artists’ songs. The band, Bottle Boys, are a team of five performers who all work together using bottles of various sizes & shapes to achieve some pretty insane sounds.
Having already covered Billie Jean in the past, the team set their sights on one of MJ’s most epic tracks, Beat It!, which features the crazily complex guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen. Near the end of the video, Bottle Boys member Phillip shares a breakdown of how they approached Eddie’s feverish pace, “[Have you] ever heard 16th-note sextuplets split between two musicians playing bottles?”
After you watch the video below… you will have!
