I play a lot of reggae. The tabs aren't the hard part to find. Its learning the rhythm to the song that's he hard part.

its all about feel, loose wrists, muting, percussive attack with the pick. you have to learn to let your fretting hand 'bounce' from fretting to muting between up and down strokes, takes time, but definitely worth mastering.

Very well put. Couldn't have said it better myself. At least we're not the drummers!

In Reggae, the 'lead guitar' is actually the bass! they refer to bass as lead guitar. crazy no?
