How to Play Cajon with Pedal and Shaker

Cajon Kit Set Up Lesson

I am here today to teach you a groove using a cajon pedal and also a shaker.I ’ve made this video to show you how cool it can be when we add different elements to play the cajon.

So, we will start the tutorial learning only the pedal and shaker pattern to really integrate the base of the groove. Then, we will start practicing the full groove. First slow at 60bpm, then a bit faster at 80bpm and then try it at the goal tempo 100bpm.

If you want the notation of the lesson, you can use the link in the description below, and it’s free.

So without further ado, let’s go to it.
