Watch the 1-4-5-4 Reggae #3 online guitar lesson by Andrew Ford from Bass Groove Survival Guide

This groove makes use of a hammer on or slur phrase. Keep the 16th notes in bar 2 short to create the bouncy rhythm and lay back those triplets in bar 4 to almost pull back on the reins of the groove after the forward motion created in bars 2 and 3. This type of intentional push and pull can make the music quite dynamic.
