I'm a beginner so don't flip out on me, and don't laugh. But don't ska riffs consist of mostly barre chords?

it's called third wave ska.


It's up for debate. I've heard several people discuss Streetlight as 4th wave.
Cory is a girl's name too.

I've played a bit Ska and Reggae for 35 years. Both genres are now more or less whatever you want them to be. But re true 'Ska'.

Yes, barre chords.... but also try using a capo... 3rd fret or higher. You can get some easy Ska going on all six strings.

If using the 3 high strings...review 'triads' on one of the excellent lessons on Youtube (such as Justinguitar)...learning triads on these strings is one of the most efficient ways to use the whole neck and get a handle on music theory at the same time.

good shit, I love catch 22 and all their stuff, and the stuff they spawned, but I must just be a stickler, cause I still consider that 3rd wave....BTW I saw catch 22 back when they where playing small victory sponsered shows in the Chicago suburbs (valpo, etc) and I saw them play at the Metro before too

Meh, I don't really fuss over categorisations

And I'm jealous... I had to fly all the way to London (from Portugal) just so I'd get to see them

And when I spoke to Mike Soprano saying "Ah man I came all the way from Portugal just to see you guys" he said "Puerto Rico!??"

Streetlight is 3rd wave. They aren't unique enough to be considered a new variation on the genre. More importantly, a wave implies that more than 1 artist is doing it.

Problem is that Streetlight doesn't really fit in with the other waves.

I didn't listen to the whole interview, but like he said, even if it's not really ska it's just punk rock. Punk rock with horns. That's not really anything revolutionary. Actually, it kinda fits the description for third wave ska.

Don't get me wrong, I love Streetlight, but they aren't pioneering a new genre. They just play good ska punk.
