Hi, can anyone tell me what sort of scales and chords are commonly used in raggae music?
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
The Music Theory FAQ above should give you a better idea.
Emphasis on the upbeat.
Major, occasionally minor.
