Ernest Ranglin

Ernest Ranglin O.D. (born 19 June 1932, Manchester, Jamaica) is a Jamaican guitarist and composer. Best known for his session work at the famed Studio One, Ranglin helped give birth to the ska genre in the late 1950s. Some[who?] credit Ranglin with the invention of the core style of guitar play (sometimes known as "scratching") found in nearly all ska music.
