Scales for reggae?

Hi, can anyone tell me what sort of scales and chords are commonly used in raggae music?

Cheers!
Regards, Dave.

i've noticed reggae is more about inflection on the notes than scales. just as an FYI i do notice basic major, minor, pentatonic and blues scales primarily in reggae

Major chords played with upstrokes on the 2nd and 4th beats of the bar I think, But I'm not certain
