This week's new lessons focus on getting an authentic reggae sound. Reggae has inspired many genres of music, and while its characteristic slow 4/4 time signatures and simple chord progressions may sound easy, there are a few techniques and tones to master for you to nail the style! 

Bea focuses on how to dial in a great reggae tone, and how to use reverb and delay to get a great sound. He also looks at two techniques that are used frequently in reggae music: chank picking and popping lines. 

An introduction to reggae guitar is available now! Head over to the lessons page to start learning.
