Grandpa Rocks it with a homemade cajon



A month or so ago I asked my Dad if he could make Corynn a cajon.  A cajon is box drum that you sit on and beat with your hands.  It takes a special touch and training to learn how to get the right sounds and I am anxious to hear what Corynn can do with it! 

This is the result of my Dad’s hand’s and research! 

( No one else will have one like this!!!!)

My Dad said he had trouble finding the 1/8” wood for the front-so he took a piece of poplar and planed it out to the right size!  This is why my Dad rocks!  It’s beautiful!

He left it plain ( no varnish or stain)so that Corynn can decorate it herself! 

( I know she will!)

Thanks Grandpa-you rock! 

Love you!

Now watch this Gramps and learn this song on your banjo so you can play with the band!
