RHYTHM GUITAR: De-Mystifying the Ska Rhythm Search Andrew for FREE lesson Handouts. This Video: October 08, 2010 | Search Videos by Date. Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I just watched your video lessons on Reggae and I was wondering if you could help me with explaining Ska Rhythm. I've read a lot of stuff about it, but it seems information conflicts between people when it comes to this style. I always enjoy your clear explanations and I hope you have the time to make a Ska Lesson. Thanks tons, - Randall, Akron, OH. A: Ska is the basic Reggae rhythm pattern. Most people aren't aware that Ska was a vibrant pre-reggae Jamaican music that appeared in the early 1960's! Also, the feel of Ska is integral to all the Jamaican styles that succeeded it making it the backbone of Jamaican Reggae to this day. The Ska is generally played by guitar and piano in unison. And, to fully understand the feel, you will have to play it. The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly.
