Cajon Track

Recently I acquired a Gon Bops Mixto cajon.  There are basically two types of cajons: the traditional Peruvian type and the Flamenco cajon with internal snare wires.  I couldn’t make up my mind so I got the Mixto, which has two playing surfaces, one traditional and one Flamenco style.  They are both very warm and fat.  The snare side has more snap. Here it is:


I am just figuring out how to transfer some of my drum kit skills to this new instrument.  Here is a slow jam with cajon, bass, and two guitars:

This is the traditional side of the cajon.  The rhythm guitar is my Casino, straight into the interface, with a bit of reverb and heavy use of the Bigsby.  The lead is my Telecaster through the Brown model on the Katana 50.  This is the first time I have recorded with that amp.
