Once you’ve learned a certain concept you’ll want to practice it. The practice loops section on the Art of Reggae membership site has longer versions of the songs used on a particular lesson video and a growing library of practice loops in different keys and in different styles. Some are re-makes of famous reggae riddims and some are of original demos by Matt Jenson. Each one mutes the track of the particular instrument you are practicing on. For example, if you are practicing keyboards, all the keyboard tracks are muted while you’ll hear the rest of the band jamming…with you!
Here is a practice loop re-make of the famous Jamaican riddim CUSS CUSS. It was first released by Lloyd Robinson on the Studio One label produced by Harry J circa 1969. Later Horace Andy had a big hit with a version of this riddim that may be more well-known than the Lloyd Robinson version. Because it’s such an infectious groove, many versions have been cut through the years.
