This manual contains the basic tools for learning to play the flamenco cajon, an instrument that has become a valuable aid for understanding flamenco rhythm and meter and their multiple combinations. This is a simple method to help understand flamenco and its language better: rhythms, technique, codes and practical exercises with harmonic bases. Ever since it was introduced into flamenco by Paco de Lucía and Rubem Dantas, the cajon has acquired a personality of its own in flamenco groups that it would never lose. Flamenco is evolving constantly and is ever in need of teaching sources, and this manual is meant to fill a gap in response to this demand, providing basic knowledge for training percussionists and flamenco students in general. The first percussion book contains musical scores for traditional flamenco dance with precise explanations of structure. It comes with a DVD with illustrations of the examples.

MIGUEL REYES JIMÉNEZ’S BIOGRAPHY
He began his musical training in the State Conservatory of Music in Mexico, specializing in percussion and jazz. Later he went to Havana, Cuba, to study Latin jazz and percussion. His passion for flamenco was born there when he discovered the "out and back" (ida y vuelta) rhythms and undertook a thorough analysis of these styles. That same year he settled in Madrid to continue his studies in the Amor de Dios Flamenco Center, and soon found himself working alongside important names in traditional flamenco. He has performed with flamenco and jazz groups in Turkey, Italy, Peru, Mexico and Cuba, and with Miriam Méndez, performing Bach por Flamenco in several countries where he shared the stage with Chick Corea, Michel Camilo and Tomatito. He has received grants from the AIE and the Casa Patas Conservatory Foundation. He currently teaches flamenco percussion in the Amor de Dios Flamenco Center, using his own teaching method.
