Anyone know of a good well rounded Reggae instruction Book?
listen to lots, and lots of Dub... Its reggae with all the crappy bits took out... Lee Peery, King Tubby, and the upseters... they will teach you all...
Here's one book/CD on reggae bass that I know of.
Mel Bay's Reggae Grooves for Electric Bass with CD,by Chris Matheos
I forgot. I also have a Robert Marley book of his best known hits and it contains basslines. I can't think of the name of the book, but I know it does exist. Learning those basslines is a good way to learn to make your own lines for similar reggae songs.
what do you mean by "crappy bits"?
I was jokin' I love reggea almost as much as I love dub, chill... On second thought I shouldn't of said crappy bits eh?.. Sorry If I offended you... I should of simply said, more bass less everything else... No hard feeling?..
hehe, ok i get it now
for a minute i though them were fightin' words!
Oh no... That would be compleatly contridictory because dub is the very essence of reggae... its cool man, but you can not tell me some of the greatist players you have ever heard played for Perry and Tubby.... its funny that there is sort of a rift between dub and reggae though.... hummm...
Ed Friedland (of BP mag fame) has written a book about Reggae bass.
Tecx, why do you say there is a rift between dub and reggae? IMO, they go hand in hand. When I listen to reggae I like to listen to the extended mixes that have the song immediately followed by the dub. Gives it more context that way.
I shoudln't worry about somebody who can't even stick to the question - so the gruuv asks quite clearly and conscisely for books !!
All the people i know like one or the other... and they are not extended mixes... they are there own...
