Re: trying t0 play three little birds.

Solo acoustic reggae songs are tough - are you trying to retain the reggae feel or do your own thang with it?

Re: trying t0 play three little birds.

I think with reggae you have to work the rhythm around the off beat.

Sounds easy and isn't

Re: trying t0 play three little birds.

Unless you play it with all barre chords you can't get that reggae feel because of the little muting thing that you need to do.

I play an easy version based on this kids video from nick jr.:

Re: trying t0 play three little birds.

Singing reggae  most vocal are  on the off beat,  just opposite of most vocals, don't use standard chords, play variations,  a lot of muting .... on three little birds  try just doing down strokes to get feel of the  rhythm.
