  • Hey GMC'ers! Today, we will examine an interesting style, the father of Ska merged several times with the sounds of blues. Keep in mind that both Reggae and Blues are originally African. That is why, we're working on a reggae backing track with powerful riffs with blues scales and the solo will be based, initially, on blues scales and then on traditional minor scales.

    Chords:
    Dm – E7 – Am – Am/F# – F – G – Gm/E – A7

    Techniques:
    * Legato
    * Alternate Picking
    * Bending
    * Vibrato
    * Slide
    * Palm Muting

    Scales:
    * A minor pentatonic + blue note
    * A minor scale + blue note

    If you have any questions:
    * Give feedback (upper-right-corner)
    * General Forum

    Enjoy!/ Jonathan
