Here is a list of bands to get you started in your search:

Less Than Jake
Reel Big Fish
Goldfinger
Catch 22
Streetlight Manifesto
Suicide Machines
Mustard Plug
Voodo Glow Skulls
The Specials
Mighty Mighty Boss Tones

These are mostly new 3rd wave punk/ska bands but the two last ones are older 1st wave ska.
What it sounds like you want is the 3rd wave stuff.

Really what you will need to be able to do as a guitar player is play the up-strokes
Bar Chords come into play most often.

Beer by Reel Big Fish. I find that really fun to play anyway...
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves-Eric Hoffer

Quote by GannonBracewell

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

Learn some reggae strumming. I'm not talking about the same upstroke everytime.

Listen to eeeeeearly Bob Marley.
Bunny Whaler.

Try the Aggrolites. But listen to the strumming its somewhat complicated.

I wouldn't start there.

Theres more stuff on that CD than people think. The rhythms aren't for starters.

I'd say to start Reel Big Fish is appropriate.

Do you want ska or punk/ska? Like someone already said, Op Ivy is great for punk/ska, as is the Suicide Machines and some Choking Victim (Crack Rock Steady is always fun).
