Watch the Ska-Baby online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know
Ska was also very popular in the British Isles with bands like The Specials and The English Beat. It has its roots in the same spots that reggae came from, but is much more up-tempo and driving. When playing Ska beats, you as a bass player must once again be the anchor, firmly establishing a reliable, constant eighth note that the rest of the band can play around. Listen to Bernie's kick and lock in as tight as you can.
