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 but I do manage to largely stay with the metronome. Just about.

Anyway! It's Ska! Every instrument welcome and the more the merrier. Get pogoing!

Enjoy.

Thanks, Alice. Ska was never my thing, but I have stood in for the drummer in a popular ska band in my area. It's two hours of hitting very hard, hitting loud and playing lots of off-beats. Sorted :)

I'm too old for this stuff!
