This might sound dumb, but I was wondering if there would be any way to turn Billie Jean into a rock or folk song with the main instrument being guitar instead of bass & Synth. All that would be needed is the correct intervals of the chord progression that is used. Wouldn't need to be the same key, it could be played in a lower key for deeper voices. I am just not sure how to go about this. What gave me the idea however, is the NWA EAZY-E cover Boyz in the hood, by Dynamite Hack, if that gives you an idea of what I may be shooting for.

Any suggestions?
