"Reggae is a music that has plenty of fight. But only the music should fight, not the people."
- Bob Marley, 1977. (Mccann p.28)

Let's start to combine all of these different examples and make some music. First let's connect the "inside melody" example from page 2 with the "arpeggiated" chorus chords from page 5. These parts together form an intricate and dynamic part that really accentuate each other and drive the groove. First try it by itself, and then we'll put it together with the "upbeat" rhythm guitar from page 1.
