Matt Philipzen's CAJ N BOOK is the author's most comprehensive caj n method to date, and is aimed at cajon newcomers, intermediate players, and pro drummers and percussionists. The focus is on the caj n as a drum set replacement. The CAJ N BOOK answers the following burning questions: - How do I transfer drum rhythms to the Cajon? - How do I transfer traditional and modern patterns to the Cajon and use them in my music? - Which stroke techniques best serve dynamic playing? - How can I accompany songs on the Cajon? - Which accessories help me make my sound interesting and authentic with additional sounds and playing possibilities? The CAJ N BOOK covers five major topics: - basics -- fundamentals & tips - sound & movements - grooves & styles - special sounds & add-ons - techniques & phrasing Although the CAJ N BOOK is not explicitly aimed at Cajon beginners, it still covers preliminary knowledge regarding basic playing techniques and notation for those who want to learn how to play the caj n 'from scratch' and who do not count reading music among their strengths. This approach is further supported by the online videos and CD play-alongs included in this package. We hope you enjoy discovering, practicing and implementing the many patterns, grooves, and techniques in Matt Philipzen's CAJ N BOOK.
