Hey gabe. I learned the notes to your reggae lesson pretty easily, the solo is quite graspable but it's the rhythm that I have had some trouble with. Not "trouble" like I can't play it, but it sounds a little weak when I play it. Any tips for playing it better? I think my tone probably has a bit to do with it too, it's a little too harsh (on my les paul).

Hi JVM! I think that you should practice it trying to play it the louder than you can. I mean play it like if you were playing a Pantera's song for a while... then when you feel it strong try play it at a normal intensity and find the groove. Practice it always with a drum loop.
