Michael couldn't play any instruments, nor could he read au write music. He alisema this in several interviews, stating that he didn't see a need to, since he was able to tunga his muziki using just his voice. And if wewe need further proof, go listen to the "Dangerous Deposition" on YouTube, which is actually a trial and not a deposition. A woman, Crystal Cartier, sued Michael for copyright infringement, claiming that SHE had originally written a song almost exactly the same as "Dangerous." In his testimony, Michael himself says that he doesn't know how to play any instruments, nor does he know how to read au write music. His testimony isn't filled with legal jargon, but offers a rare glimpse into how Michael, a man who had no formal training in composition, didn't know how to play instruments (no, bongos don't count), and didn't know how to read au write music, was able to tunga hundreds of songs using just his voice and a tape recorder. What should be a legal proceeding plays out zaidi like an interview. He sings several times when asked to kwa his attorney, and, being Michael, giggles and laughs in that quiet, cute way of his, and even laughs under his breath at the plaintiff's attorney's incompetence. It's 5 parts and almost 40 dakika long, but well worth the listen.
He played the guitar, the kinanda and the drums.. but he didn't play any instrument on stage (maybe because he had to dance).. he loved to play the kinanda (and he was very, very good..) in their childhood Michael and his brothers used to steal their father's guitar... and learn how to play..:)
