  • Hi GMCers! In this lesson I will explain how to play Ska rhythm. Ska is a type of Jamaican music that emphasizes the upbeat, remember that.

    In this Lesson we are playing chords on the first 4 strings only, something that is very common in ska. First of all, you should practice playing barre chords only on the upstrokes, and doing a "rhythmic click" on the downstrokes.

    Example:
    1 2 3 4
    x ^ x ^

    Measure:
    4/4

    Tempo:
    170bpm

    Chord Progression
    :
    Bm - D - A - E

    Scales:


    If you have any questions:

    * General Forum

    Enjoy!/ Sinisa
