Regge is all about the up beat, the regge guitar is mostly a percusive instument here, but the simple chords used can reflect the melody.The chords used are mostly on the high E,B,G,and sometimes the D strings,The simpilest way i've found to create a regge riff is to hit a chord with a very sticoto(hard,accented)way,then for the second chord go down a perfect fith and play,(or down or up a stirng) but if that don't work usually go with the bass line,or just muffle the top three stings.Heres the main chord shapes...
If you want to do a cool little solo use a blues scale and
The chord shape can be used anywhere on the fret board,and same with the scale, just use your imagenation(lol)but any ???'s
