Drums - Strong Reggae Beat

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.

Jam-it, Mon!
