Guitar Technique


I would a clean tone for the reggae rhythm guitar and maybe a little bit of a phaser or some similar guitar effect pedal. The chorus part is just a basic arpeggio of the chords and can be played finger picked or picked with a pick, both ways sound good. This song has an awesome guitar solo, and I recommend trying to learn it by ear. Lots of blues runs and tasty bends.

Reggae Song Lyrics

It’s hard for me when I
Think about the things that never been
They keep coming back again
Like they’ve got something to prove
I love my memories but they have a way
Of controlling me at times
And I’m so lost without you yeah yeah

And I can’t get far from it.
And from what went wrong
And I know it’s stupid cuz it’s been so long.
But father I give away the more I hold on
It’s just this feeling I get
It’s like I’m not done yet
I’m not done yet

I think about those times
When we were young
And everything was so brand new
And our words were so true and you
Looked into my eyes that one last time
If I had known back then
What I’d be living with today
We might have stayed but

I can’t get far from it.
And from what went wrong
And I know it’s stupid
Cuz it’s been so long.
But father I give away
The more I hold on
It’s like I try to forget
Some how I’m not done yet
I’m not done yet

It’s hard for me when I
Think about the things that never been
They keep coming back again
Like they’ve got something to prove
It’s like I’m not done yet


 Guitar Technique

For the intro riff I am using the palm muting guitar technique to dampen the sound of the strings and give them a percussive effect. Also I’m not really using much vibrato. The guitar pedal effect I use is the Budda wah pedal which adds some more top end to the guitar tone. Fore the rhythm part it’s just down strokes on the offbeat, nice and easy. Finally practice your bends to make sure the intonation is right for the intro riff and try to learn the chords for the chorus by ear!

Song Lyrics

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they’re strong
But my knees were far too weak,
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you’d say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you
I could stay there
Close my eyes
Feel you here forever
You and me together
Nothing is better

‘Cause there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew,
All the things you’d say,
They were never true, never true,
And the games you’d play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
When it fell, something died
‘Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door,
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
Even now when we’re already over
I can’t help myself from looking for you.

[Chorus:]
I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames
When it fell, something died
‘Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, ohhhh!

Oh noooo
Let it burn, oh
Let it burn
Let it burn

Guitar Technique

reggae guitar lessons songbook

Listen to the recording to hear how the  notes are played short and phrased. This of the best reggae songs to play on acoustic guitar because of the finger picked intro. If you are a beginner guitar player this song can be simplified by just playing the open chords on the downbeat. Then when you get comfortable with the chord changes try the finger picking pattern.

Songs Lyrics

Well it’s about that time for us to look around and meet somebody new
Let’s all welcome in familiar faces, perhaps somebody who,
Has got a conflict in their life
Tell them you’re sorry, but there’s ways to change the wrong to right
See we can sit in a distant haze and watch rain clouds pour thoughts of greatness and help our troubles sail real far away.
Well it’s a struggle – everyday we’re stressing, but what’s a life without dedication?
I’m trying to pick up the souls intention to soak in music relaxation
We’re feeling good, we’re feeling alright
We’re feeling good, we’re feeling alright
In a moment I’ll be on my way, to better days, while life is changing
And even though I’ve had my share of pain, I’ve been sympathizing and realizing
I’ve got a feeling that we can be a better friend
Simply complimenting every now and then
In the morning I wake up and miss the night before
Cause I love the music more and more
See we can sit in a distant haze and watch rain clouds pour thoughts of greatness to help our troubles sail real far away
While it’s a struggle everyday we’re stressing, but what’s a life without dedication?
I’m trying to pick up the souls intention to soak in music relaxation
