How To Play The Cajon

The Box Cajon is very simple to play.

There are no hard and fast rules, but if you are playing in a band or with other musicians you will want to at least keep in time with the music and punch out a basic beat to start with.

So therefore learning to play the Cajon is very much like learning to play any percussion instrument or a drum kit.

It starts basic and as you become more proficient the complexity of the rhythms you play will expand.

Here are a few videos that will give you a basic idea of how to get started playing the cajon.

These videos were made by Paul Jennings and they give you the basics and will have you playing.....

Literally in a few minutes.
