The main difference between rock beats and reggae beats is the snare hits. Usually, rock hits on beats 2 and 4, but in reggae the snare hits are on beats 1 and 3. This contributes to the vibrant bouncy feel most reggae has.
The beat in today's blog entry is a stronger reggae attack. The kick drum pounds away with a four-on-the-floor approach. When you get this beat down try adding some emphasis to some of the hat hits and see what sort of groove you come up with.
Here's the audio track to this beat to guide you.
