Introduce yourself

Post  maffew on Thu May 31, 2012 8:52 am

Hi - I didn't think there were any cajon forums out there! But there are. My name's Matt and I've been playing cajon for 2 years. I play a hybrid of drum and bass/jungle/flamenco and hip hop with my band More Like Trees.

I was sold on cajon the second I touched one, and I've barely even sat at a drum kit since. The range of sounds you achieve is just amazing, and I don't think i've played a more versatile percussive instrument. So hello!

Hello Maffew,

Thanks for the tip on the thumbs. I've tried different approaches using the thumb but the side of the knuckle is what works -- so I'll just "man-up" and quit whining like a girl. I'm new to the cajon as well & was taken by it the 1st time I laid hands on one. In fact I'm new to hand drumming / percussion. Years ago I used to play guitar & bass and recently started beating on skins & boxes. I never played with a group -- always just for personal enjoyment. I've checked out your group More Like Trees -- the chemistry amongst you shines thru. I'll "show some love" & download some of you tunes in the near soon. Best of luck to you & the Trees!

Cheers,
Tom
