so i am trying to learn the basics of reggae and its techniques. can anybody help me out?
It's very chordal and played on the off-beat. It's not too advanced technique-wise, but it has defining characteristics.

Listen to the man, he's Jewish.
The fundamentals of reggae guitar involve barre chords on the top three strings and mostly strumming in upstrokes on the off-beat. Here is an example of a basic reggae guitar part.

Now this is a very basic C-F-G progression, but it works well. Reggae isn't a particularly guitar-driven genre. If you look at pictures of Bob Marley, you'll notice that his guitars often don't have the D string on at all because he played parts like the above so much.
