Watch the 1-4-5-4 Reggae #2 online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

Here we have the same basic groove but we add a few fills at the end of phrases to spice up the groove, remember these fills can clutter up the groove if used excessively. The 16th note swing is vital here. I play a lot of the note G in bar 4 even though the chord is a C, it provides some melodic contrast.
