The cajon is not only a percussion instrument in its own right, it has also become the new drumset. Playing space and musical setting/dynamics have much to do with this, but practicality has blossomed into a viable means of expression that is not limited to percussionists only. Chris Steele’s book, aimed at drummers as well as non-drummers (i.e., anyone else), provides everything anyone might need to know about playing the cajon: from learning how to get a sound, to getting many sounds and textures, to rhythms that work in any setting or style.
