How to play the BOLERO on Cajon

Hey cajon players, It’s great to be back here!

Today I’m going to teach you the Bolero on cajon. In this tutorial 2 groove variations of the Bolero for you to apply when you play the style. We are going to start playing it together with the metronome at 50bpm for you to integrate the patterns. Then when you integrate the patterns we will try at the goal tempo 70 bpm.

After you feel comfortable with the groove and the variations you are going to play with music. I have included the Backing track in the video for you to practice with music that is also at 70bpm

I suggest that you follow the lesson with the notation available in the Free Area at
