Best Reggae Songs
Reggae is all music that has a rhythm accented with an offbeat usually on the second and fourth beats of each bar. In addition, the rhythm guitar emphasizes the third beat or holds the chord on the second beat until the fourth is played. The third beat’s speed and the use of complex bass is a signature of reggae music.
Reggae formed from ska, mento and R&B styles of music. The biggest propitiator of reggae music is Bob Marley. Bob Marley started with musical group the Wailers promoting the image of the urban guerilla. Bob’s stardom peaked when he converted to a more soulful-pop melody sound in the early 70’s.
