Basic (theory and probably stupid) question #2

Hello all

Yesterday I asked a stupid question about. amps (Cabs vs combos)....

today its theory - and I'd be really grateful for any help you wise and wonderful bunch can provide. 

I enjoy listening to reggae and ska. Apologies if this is a stupid question - but are there scales or patterns that are prevalent in these styles? Anything I could learn that would help me? I am basic and self taught so I struggle - for example with the playing of Roddy 'Radiation' Byers of the specials or Peter Tosh of the Wailers. 

When I manage to work out their parts I cannot understand the scales they're using (essentially anything other than a blues pentatonic and I am lost lol)

Any help gratefully appreciated 

James
