Hey there Cajon Drummers! Welcome back to another video here on Cajon Groove Guide. Today we have another lesson all about playing reggae on the cajon. So just like in the previous reggae lesson we’re going to use a “One Drop” feel. If you’d like to check out that video first It’s very basic, easy to understand. I’ll put a link in here for you now. Let’s get started with today’s groove. We’ll break it down into two parts. The first part will focus just on what’s happening up here around the snare. And then in the second part, we’re going to add in that all-important bass. So two easy steps and we’ll have a new cajon groove to play. So, just playing the snare part of this groove, sounds like this: 1, 2, 3, 4… So, the next thing to work on for this groove is the right hand. It’s job is moving between the corner and the middle snare. Let’s listen to just the right hand for a moment. 1, 2, 3, 4… So that’s the tricky thing that’s happening with the right hand. One the left hand we have one double that we need to look out for. I’ll show you nice and slow so that you can practice that as well. OK so we’ve almost finished putting together this groove We have the pulse, we have the right hand going between the corner and the middle. We have the left hand doing that one double. OK so I almost forgot! One of the finishing details on this groove is a finger roll. So at the end of the phrase, We’ve got “tap, tap, snare” Just with the left hand using these two fingers. I’ll link in here as well a playlist for all of my videos about finger technique So you can brush up on that before if it’s something you’re still working on Otherwise, let’s add that in as well. Okay! The last thing we’re going to do and thankfully the easiest thing is add in the bass! So if we remember where that double is Right? On beats 2 and 4 That’s where our bass is The only difficult thing is We don’t want to have a big.. Double hit on the bass We want to have the first one as strong and the second hit to be a bit lighter on our way back up to the snare Right? All together… So the goal is to have that fat accent on the bass and follow it with just a little ghost note. And there we go! Thank you very much for watching. I hope you enjoyed.
