“Irie Strut” provides an opportunity to expose your students to a contemporary shuffle/reggae-inflected groove. All the elements are here: the reggae bass line, the upbeat guitar rhythm and the 16th note shuffle, all propelled by the drums and percussion. This is naturally a guitar feature, but feel free to experiment with horns (like at C). This chart does “strut,” so the rhythm section needs to study the recording to understand the feel and to notice the elements that move it along. There is also ample opportunity in this chart for multiple guitarists to work together, allowing everyone the chance to get in on the action.
