  1. Thank you Felipe,
    This course was great! I learnt the cajon about 5 years ago. I was in a combination class of different levels and always felt there were bits and pieces I just didn’t grasp I.e. subdivisions. No fault of the teacher! I’m ashamed to say my poor cajon went to live in a wardrobe! This class ( & your YT videos) and your wonderful explanations/ demonstrations have reignited my love of the instrument! My cajon is happy!

    1. This is great Jackie! I’m glad to have helped you to get back on track 😉 Let me know if you need any further help, cheers!

  4. Hi Felipe, as I am increasing the tempo, I noticed that my ghost notes are much louder than they should be. Is it then better to play at a lower tempo to really to get the technique right, or would you recommend to stay at the higher tempo but focus more on the ghost notes. I hope my question makes sense. Thanks.

    1. Hi Dominique,
      thanks for your message.
      Always practice slow! 🙂 If the ghost notes are louder when you increase the tempo you should spend more time with the pattern slow until you integrate it. It can take a bit of time but after you get it, it will be automatic with any tempo (slow or fast). Ghost notes are the one of the most important techniques for the grooves of the courses, and master them with the right volume it’s the goal here.
      Feel free to share a video to get feedback, you can share it with me in the Forums section or via message here in the members area.
      Keep working on it and let me know how it goes 😉
      cheers

  5. Hi Felipe. Me again… Thanks for your reply to my previous question.
    In order to get a good deep bass sound I have to reach about 1 1/2 to 2 inch lower than the way you show it in your video. Could it have a negative impact on my posture long term and should I try to get my bass tone by hitting closer to the top edge of the cajon.
    I really enjoy your program and since I just started I just want to make sure I don’t have to unlearn bad habits down the road. Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Dominique,
      Thanks again for reaching out.
      It’s important to keep the posture steady as I explained, to not hurt yourself. The bass sound will probably be different depending with cajon model or brand you have. It would be easir for me to give you some feedback about that if you send a video showing your playing position of posture and hands. it can be with your mobile no worries.
      you can send it via messages here or post it in the forum “member videos/recordings”
      Hope it helps

  6. 100% complete yeah!! I’ll continue to practice it as it takes time to combine speed and power perfectly !
    Awesome course thank you Felipe.
    See you in the Fills Course 😀
    Cheers !!
