Description : While the site was being updated I started to learn to play the cajon drum. Here is an explanation of this groovy box drum.
The cajón is the most widely used Afro-Peruvian musical instrument since the late 18th century.
Slaves of west and central African origin in the Americas, specifically Peru, are considered to be the source of the cajón drum; though the instrument is common in musical performance throughout the Americas.
The cajón was most likely developed in coastal Peru during the early 19th century or before,[1] where it is associated with several Afro-Peruvian genres. The instrument reached a peak in popularity by 1850, and by the end of the 19th century cajón players were experimenting with the design of the instrument by bending some of the planks in the cajón's body to alter the instrument's patterns of sound vibration.

UPDATE from my previous post.
To avoid copyright claim issue with the Beatles' songs, I did a guitar cover of a song from another band. I've used your loop as backing track. Here's the link on my YouTube channel, MNX123. Pls. enjoy watching. Also, pls. like & subscribe. :)

So finally I found some decent cajon sounds for my acoustic live projects. Thank you man. Maybe you post some cajon rhythms added with a shaker ;-)
Have a great time

Summer went pretty well thanks for asking. Edinburgh festival was great fun even though at the time it was very tiring. I'm on with a complete house renovation at present which is very time consuming so I will be not really doing many loops until next Summer, but I thought I would record some of the cajon as it's a great simple rhythm maker with a cool natural sound ( also super fun to play ).

Stay safe!

Cheers, Slap...
