Reggae & Ska: Life On The Upbeat
"(Reggae) is what you call international music, complete music. Any music you want to play inside of reggae, you can put it here. But it's the rhythm now that is reggae. Proud rhythm, man, that rhythm can't end... It's earth rhythm, roots!"
- Bob Marley, June, 1975 (McCann p.29)
Here's a chance to put these two patterns together. For the moment we will only deal with the first four measures of this fill. There is more to come, but "locking in" to this kind of groove is really important. Alternate between parts until you feel comfortable with both.
