Reggae Bass 101

Recommended Posts

Hi all - wondering if you guys could help me with some basic stuff.

I'm typically into my soul/funk style bass playing, and feel comfortable doing grooves in many tempos with passing notes and fills and the like. Thing is, my current band have decided to do a reprise of a chorus in a reggae style; at which point I realised I have NO experience of playing/listening to reggae at all!

If anyone could show me any good tracks for bass in reggae music, or tell me the typical DO's/DON'Ts in that style of bass playing, or even direct me to some videos of typical grooves/patterns, that'd be awesome!

Cheers!

Daaave.

We do a cover of this, it's the same pattern throughout, the only difference is the pausing between notes
