Staring at the way the light hits these orange slices seems like a great way to spend an hour. That’s what often bothers some people: that artists can be sidetracked by beauty and forget all about what we were supposed to do.
If you are still looking for presents… here is a good one. The book is only $13 and contains links to a wealth of video content in which Chris plays and explains a variety of rhythms. It’s the best book for anyone who wants to start playing the cajón or improve their cajón chops.
