I'm recently getting into learning that keyboard machine to add to a few parts of my ska music. I have a question to anyone who knows how to play this ska madness well.

Any tips on playing with the guitar in two tone style music? Specials-esq I guess.

Any suggestions on the tone or sound for it?

Try not having a username based on a shitty Green Day song.

Now watch me get e-raped for insulting a forum regular.

Nah it's cool, we all make fun of him for his terrible username and his girl troubles.

Yeah I have that problem getting that real short sound that madness and the specials use. Id recommend listening to as much madness as you can to absorb his style. I know toy pianos are used in a lot of ska and reggae music, and a hammond organ is aslo quite popular (The selecter), wish I could help you more.
