reggae tunes with lead melody played by guitar

Post by stranded horse » Tue Jul 12, 2011 4:59 pm

can yo recommend me some reggae tnes in which the main melody is played by a guitar?
I want to get some inspiration how to voice melodies without making them sound like blues solos.

Only good example I found so far is Chase The Devil, with the jazzy octaves in the beginning.

cheers, Franz

some examples...

..offcourse as Neil pointed out, everything from ernest ranglin for a wonderful laid back jazz reggae feel

-Neil C's youtube link is locked by youtube here in germoney, the tune is "stop that train" by ernest ranglin. if you still want to hear it go here and just copy paste this video link
