Matt Philipzen's Caj n Book is the author's most comprehensive caj n method to date, and is aimed at caj n newcomers, intermediate players, and pro drummers and percussionists. The focus is on the caj n as a drum set replacement. The Caj n Book answers the following burning questions: - How do I transfer drum rhythms to the caj n? - How do I transfer traditional and modern patterns to the caj n and use them in my music? - Which stroke techniques best serve dynamic playing? - How can I accompany songs on the caj n? - Which accessories help me make my sound interesting and authentic with additional sounds and playing possibilities? The i>Caj n Book covers five major topics: - basics: fundamentals & tips - sound & movements - grooves & styles - special sounds & add-ons - techniques & phrasing. Although the i>Caj n Book is not explicitly aimed at caj n beginners, it still covers preliminary knowledge regarding basic playing techniques and notation for those who want to learn how to play the caj n from scratch and who do not count reading music among their strengths. This approach is further supported by the online videos and CD play-alongs included in this package. We hope you enjoy discovering, practicing and implementing the many patterns, grooves, and techniques in Matt Philipzen's Caj n Book.
