Tips for playing Level 5 Dancehall style "Joy to the World":
This unique Dancehall style "Joy to the World" is at Level 5 (advanced level). It has a lot of syncopation and requires rhythmical coordination between right & left hands. The strong Dancehall bass line keeps going non-stop throughout the song to keep the steady tempo and rhythmical bass pattern. We created a bridge which happens twice and a nice ending in the arrangement. Please listen to the free complete audio sample on the top of this page to hear this joyous and fun arrangement.
This style called 'Dancehall' is a style that got developed in the 1970s in Jamaica from Reggae music.
