Thread Name: I hate the cajon.
Subject: RE: I hate the cajon.
While originating in Peru, the cajón is used a lot in flamenco music these days. I believe this use was originated by Paco De Lucia (sp?).
In the hands of a competent, tasteful drummer, the cajón sounds great. In the hands of an incompetent, tasteless drummer, it will sound terrible.
The same can be said for a bodhran, a drum kit, a djembe, a shakey egg or a guitar (or any instrument).
