Guitar Techniques


This Bob Marley song is one of the best reggae songs off his classic album “Legends”.  The key to playing this song is using a sharp right hand attack for the rhythm part. The main guitar riff uses a palm muting technique, which is resting the right hand palm over the bridge of the guitar to dampen the sound of the strings. Listen to the rhythmic accents when you play along to this song.

Guitar Techniques

To get that warm, organic acoustic guitar tone I am using my thumb to pick out the intro riff and strum the chords. I’m also picking closer to the bridge of the guitar for the strumming. These are the guitar technique’s Bob Marley used, as you can see in the video clip below.

I also am keeping my right hand in constant motion to keep the rhythm flowing. This is important to feel the pulse of the music and so your playing doesn’t sound stiff.

Guitar Technique


The Wah effect pedal can be used for the rhythm guitar part Bob Marley is playing by pressing all the way down on your wah pedal. Using the clean channel of your guitar amp this should give your guitar more top end (treble).

The wah pedal can also be used during the lead guitar part that Peter Tosh is playing. You want to slowly press down on the pedal as you play the chord on the downbeat.

With guitar effect pedals less is always more, so try to be economic with your use of the Wah pedal when playing
