Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question about, "How to Play Reggae Guitar Style." I have been asked to join a reggae band, but I have very little experience playing reggae guitar. I would like to know the following - What is the correct strum direction? Is it up or down, Ive heard differing opinions on this. Can you please clarify. - When it comes to soloing what are the main scales that players use in this style? - Sometimes in Marley tunes I hear a muted scratch technique. Can you please explain this technique. - What are the main chord types used and how many strings are usually played? Some of the songs I have to learn have thin sounding chords, but other songs have very full sounding chords. Any help you could give me on this subject would be very much appreciated including artists I should start paying attention to. Thank you, Jared from Flagstaff, Arizona U.S.A.
