[MUSIC]
So
here's a, another reggae feel in the key
of A minor, A minor.
And notice on this one, again, we have the
accents coming from the guitar,
what they call skank, on the off beats.
And then we have the bass outlining the A
minor scale in an arpeggiated form so
we have the.
[MUSIC]
And
it's a very bouncy, rhythmic, type of
baseline.
[MUSIC]
It's like you're telling a story.
[MUSIC]
And
what I love about the reggae music it
just, for me, it just relaxes me and
makes me just feel good, makes you feel
like moving.
So check out this reggae groove in A
minor.
[MUSIC]
So now that you completely know how to
play reggae music, I'd like to invite you
to send me a video.
It's your turn to listen to the backing
tracks, select any one that you want
to select, and if you want to, listen to
some of my lines to get some ideas, but
more importantly, let me hear some of your
ideas.
Be sure to check out the other students'
video exchanges with me.
And send me your video and I'll take a
listen and
get right back to you with some feedback.
So I can't wait to hear what you come up
with with the reggae, man.
