Today I play some nice shuffle grooves on the cajon.

I start by demonstrating that the shuffle is really just triplets where we omit the middle note.  I then start with a very simple shuffle groove and as so often before then slowly add more bass tones and slap tones to...

I had so much fun a few weeks ago when I did a video on funky paradiddle grooves that I decided to do another one.  As before we start with a rather simple groove, and then we add to it untill we reach our final groove.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hi guys.  In this fourth video on triplets we look at some more 8th note triplet grooves for the  cajon.  These grooves are a bit more involved than the grooves in my last triplet grooves video, so if you have not watched that, I recommend that you do so before watchin...

Hi everyone.  In this third video on triplets we look at some 8th note triplet grooves for the  cajon.  We start with a simple groove where the bass tone is played at beats one and three, and the slap tone is played at beats two and four.  In between we play two mid to...

It´s Friday, and I think this is a good time for a cool samba groove on the cajon.  In the video I play a samba groove that I like quite a lot.  The groove consists of three main parts.  We have the classic bass drum samba pattern for our bass tone.  We have another pa...

This video continues looking at 16th note patterns for the Cajon.  This is the third and last (for now) in the series of 16th note grooves.  Here we look at a groove that is more of a pop/rock groove, but can, like the others, be used in many different musical settings...

Today we continue looking at 16th note grooves.  Like in my last post we start with a relatively simple groove, and then we add more bass notes as we go along.

Like before I play these grooves alternating my hand, first leading with my right hand, and then with my left.

In this video I start looking at grooves based on 16th notes.

There are four sixteenth note to a quarter notes, and these are counted

1-e-and-ah-2-e-and-ah-3-e-and-ah-4-e-and-ah.

I only play these grooves with alternating hands. 

So I play each groove r-l-r-l... and then...

In my last post I showed you some simple 8th note grooves.  Today we are continuing with that theme, but instead of a simple backbeat we are going to place one of the slap tone at an off-beat, or 2 AND, to be precise.  This changes the feel into a latin feel.  These gr...

In today´s video I play three simple eighth note grooves.  These grooves are simple to play but yet can be used in many pop or rock settings.  These are the first grooves we look at here, and I encourage you to practice them using a metronome (even if I did not in the...
