Reggae is a type of music that first originated from Jamaica sometime in the late 60s. This music genre has its roots in other types such as R&B, ska, rocksteady, and soul music. By listening to a few good reggae songs, you will easily be able to figure out familiar elements from all these music types. Reggae music mainly comprises a slow tempo and accents usually on the second and fourth beats of a single bar. The guitar rhythm is typically played on the third beat in a bar. The bass guitar also accompanies the guitar and drums with prominent bass lines. If you are thinking about the best reggae artists and musicians, Bob Marley is one of the most notable.
