NEW! Rumba video Lesson 3

The third lesson in our Rumba grooves Video Lessons series. Here Heidi Joubert takes us through some of the rumba patterns we have learnt, and goes explains how to apply them after each other in order to make different parts to your songs. In this lesson we learn how to change from one pattern to an entirely different pattern, but still keeping our basic feel of the groove we are playing. This changes parts of your song drastically without changing the overall feel of the style you are playing in.

The next Rumba Lesson will be more tricky, we’ll be looking at the Tumbao!

NEW! Rumba video lesson 2

Following rumba lesson 1, Heidi Joubert runs thru a few new variations and patterns on the rumba groove. This is basic rumba groove patterns for the beginner. Check out rumba lesson 1 before you do this one, and check out rumba lesson 3 after this lesson.

Rumba video lesson on cajon

Here’s a basic first groove to getting started with the rumba on cajon!

The rumba has so many different patterns, grooves and feels, it has a vast range of different ways to play it. It is used most often in Latin, Cuban, African, Arabic and Flamenco (rumba catalana) styles, but the rumba pattern is al sooften used in reggeaton, dance (house etc) and popular music as well. Learning to play the rumba is important for anyone who plays cajon, it’s like learning to play alternative patterns to spice up popular music.

I am looking forward to being in the studio this week and filming rumba lesson 2, sign up to our newsletter tand be the first to know when it’s out!

We want to hear from you!

An intro to Rumba on the cajon

 Hello Fellow cajon lovers!

With Fernando’s Kitchen, my band, I play the rumba about 80% of the time!! It is an essential rhythm to learn on the cajon, and the world of rumba is vast and big!! The rumba is probably one of the oldest rhythms to be used on the cajon, and goes hand in hand with the development of the cajon. This is only the foundation to get you started but there is so many things one can do with the rumba, it’s really amazing!

Hope you like this lesson, feel free to leave some comments below, more about the rumba coming soon!

A personal note from the Author…

“I have long dreamed of starting up a page dedicated to cajon and percussion, a page where you can learn to play the cajon and percussion with free cajon tuition courses, and where you can find great, innovative percussions and cajons from independant makers who take every care to diligently craft and deliver an instrument of outstanding  quality.  A blog page and a community page is soon to follow, so there is so much more coming! In the meanwhile, enjoy some video lessons, arranged in order, or check out some of the newest and hippest cajons and percussions around!

Thanks for visiting my site and I sincerely hope that you improve super fast in your cajon and percussion studies!! Don’t forget to comment or leave some feedback, this helps me to continually improve and stay encouraged!! Many thanks for all your support and love, It has helped get me to where I am today!

Cajon love to you all!
