Hello cajon players!

I’m back here on the channel with another cajon lesson for you. And I have news for you!

It’s the release of my brand new Groove Course 2. In this course I cover concepts and techniques like syncopated grooves, grooves with double strokes, grooves whit the sides of the cajon finger roll grooves and more. I cannot wait to see you on the inside 😉

The course is available at, you can sign up here.

Back to the lesson 🙂

Following thet concept of drum kit grooves adapted for the cajon I have chosen a very cool groove for you. It’s an Upbeat soul groove. The roots of this groove comes from the Bo Diddley groove that I’ve already made a tutorial here, and the cool thing of this specific groove is the backbeat always on the &s of the bar. It will make people move, trust me!

You can hear this groove in songs like

  • Valerie by Amy Winehouse
  • Faith George Michael

You can follow this tutorial with the FREE Pdf available in Free Area

Time to learn the beat, let’s get started!


I hope you like this tutorial.
