How to Get Faster on Cajon πŸš€ Faster Hands

Hello cajon drummers!

Today I’m going to answer questions that many of you want to know:

How to play faster on cajon? how to increase your hand speed?

There are 2 ways to see that, first one is the RAW speed, for example when you practice single strokes and you simply play it, increasing the tempo without thinking in a pattern. And second there is the Pattern speed, that’s the one I’m going to show you today.

I think the pattern speed is the best way to increase the tempo and sound more natural when you need to play faster grooves and fills. I’ve selected 3 patterns that I use to warm up and helped me a lot to increase the speed on the cajon.

I suggest to you to start practicing the patterns slow and then increase the tempo according to your progress.Β
