Hello cajon players,
I have been on the road now for a few weeks, from Bahrain to Germany. As a consequence I have found it hard to post new lessons.
I have been planning a new batch of 40 lessons to be posted by the end of July.
If you have any ideas at all for anything you would like to see please let me know.
More coming soon,
All the best.
