MJ's version of Hugh Prestwood's "Love Is A Cross" is beautiful.  There are only two video's of it that I know of and both are audio only, so I decided to figure out how to play it the old-fashioned way, i.e, by simply listening.   Yesterday I recorded it and posted to Youtube what I'm pretty sure is how MJ played it. p

I altered the ending in that Michael changed keys for the finale while I decided to alter the melody a bit to get a similar lift to the ending.  Given the particularity of the fret hand fingering required, I believe the key change was done with a capo.
