After doing Piper's upload yesterday which involved hopping from ska to techno, I thought I'd do a straightforward Ska template for people to meddle around with as there seemed to be an appetite for it. I think the structure is 16 bars verse, 16 bars chorus, 16 bars verse, 16 bars chorus, 16 bars middle thingy, 16 bars chorus. It adds up, at least! Tempo's 160 bpm. Fast playing is not my thing - it's where my left-handed-but-play-right-handed thing holds me up ...
