English term or phrase:fake your way through the classic one-drop feel
Be prepared to screw your head around. You're about to enter a rhythmic world where up is down and front is back - at least that's how reggae feels to hapless rock drummers who have grown used to dropping the bass bomb on the 1 and 3 rather than the 2 and 4. And unlike brush bluffing, you can't ***fake your way through the classic one-drop feel***, precisely because feel is what it is all about, with grooves that often have the slightest touch of swing that is easy to hear but difficult to play. A little bonus for drummers - reggae tunes often begin with clever fill, and they usually make great use of percussion. Here are some famous examples that underpinned these highly political tracks.
