Thread Name: I hate the cajon.
Subject: I hate the cajon.
I can't stand the sound of the damned things and everyone I hear playing one seems to be overplaying. They slap away at the godforsaken box like they have ants crawling all over it or something. Imagine a proper jazz drum kit being hit so constantly and frenetically. It would sound like 100 typewriters on at once.

I'm scheduled to lead singing at a church, asked to do so alone and just got informed that a fellow has been enlisted to smack the bloody box alongside md. Oh, joy.

Especially since I'll be playing some gentle hymns and some in 3/4 time. The rattling box will just sound so lovely, all the more because the theme of the sermon is to be a proper view of grief and mourning. yes, let's include some goofus banging on a crate!

I hate the cajon and how there's not a shred of Cuban music to be played by the majority of the users I hear. It's all bang, bang, bang over damned rock noises.
