Best Instruments In Reggae Music

Best Instruments In Reggae Music -  What are the Main Instruments in Reggae Music is another question which is asked of us on a regular basis?

Three of the main instruments in Reggae are Vocals, Drums and The Bass Guitar.

Reggae music's legend Bob Marley music mostly consists of Vocals, Guitars, Percussion and Drums.

Over time other instruments have been added to making of Reggae beats such as the Electric Organ and French Horns.

The main driving force behind the genre of Reggae Music is the Drums and Bass Guitar. These two instruments are what the lovers of Reggae music first loved and then the vocals.

Top Ten Reggae Instruments:

  1. The Drum
  2. The Keyboard
  3. The Bongo
  4. The Organ
  5. The Piano
  6. The Bass Guitar
  7. The Clavinet
  8. The Horns
  9. Percussion
  10. The Guitar

Everything about reggae has to do with the rhythm/riddim. One can clearly differentiate a reggae tune/song against another genre by just identifying the rhythm/beat patterns.

The bass guitar plays an important role in holding the rhythm down in reggae. Most reggae bass parts are just repeating beats.

Technology is now the way, gone are the days when a studio would have a player for every instrument in order for a reggae beats to be made.

Popular software such as Fruity  Loop, Magix Music Maker, MuseScore, Drumflow, Ordrumbox and Hydrogen has made it very easy for anyone with a Mac or PC computer to become a beat maker. Most software is loaded with all the instruments needed to make a Reggae beat.
