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

Groove #3 begins with the same phrase as the last two examples then moves to a riff in bar 2 that leaves out the root of the chord, F. It continues with a riff in bar 3 that chromatically walks up from the 2nd, D, to the major 3rd or E. Playing D, Eb, and then E over a C chord. We are actually playing melodies or very melodic on top of whatever melody is going on vocally, so, we must be careful not to step on, but in stead compliment the main melody.
