    Use this forum to introduce yourself and say hello. It’s helpful for me to know a little bit about my students so please mention

    – how long you’ve been playing

    – where you are from

    – what instrument(s) you play

    – anything else you want to say about your cajon playing experience.

    Getting to know the other students that are learning the same things you are can be a source of inspiration and encouragement so don’t be shy. Create a new topic within this forum to make your introduction…

    Hello,

    About me
    My name is Martin, I have just received my Cajon. I decided to go for the Schlagwerk CP404BLK Cajon (Black Edition) and I love the build quality and so far what I hear with the sounds I am making as a beginner. I decided to get a cajon when I saw one over the Christmas period being played by a good French friend of mine in France. He knew that I passed my Grade 2 on the drums a few years ago but I’ve not played again since due to work! I did not take him up on his offer as there was an audience and I didn’t want to embarrass myself šŸ™‚ I’m glad I didn’t now because it’s not as easy as people make it look (I’m looking at you Felipe šŸ˜‰). I am very much looking forward to learning all styles!

    Why the Cajon
    I have decided that the Cajon is perfect for me because not only do I LOVE the sounds and tones it generates, but it’s a lot easier to carry around than a drum kit (even an electric one). I had always seen them but didn’t know much about them, I only knew them as a drum box until I started researching. I was recommended to go on the Thomann.de website (and what a great website that is) but trying to choose a Cajon and not even knowing anything about them was a risk, but it paid off.

    My Goal
    The people that I visit in France (the very talented ones) play a lot of folk music and the Cajon sounds amazing with it (I want to introduce brushes there when I get good enough), so my goal is to be good enough to sit up there with them playing whilst being watched by wine intoxicated public šŸ™‚

    Anyway, looking forward to starting this journey this evening and impressing my wife (finger’s crossed).
