Caixa em Cima lessson

This lesson is an overview of my technique for playing samba on caixa em cima (caixa above, played holding the drum). It includes some exercises to develop good sound and rhythm in both hands and get started playing the most common samba rhythm for caixa em cima, as played by Salgueiro, Tijuca, Beija Flor, Grande Rio, Estacio, and many other samba schools in Rio.

I learned a lot about this technique and rhythm from Mestre Marc√£o of Salgueiro. Watch him play caixa here:
