This could be the first time I've EVER welcomed Winter!
Yes and Yes. I was part of another drum forum back in 2000 that was dying. James Walker and Felix were part of that same forum. I got the idea to start my own forum and incorporate some of the values that I thought needed to be present in an online community ... and the Drummer Cafe was born ... December, 2001. Needless to say its grown a lot since then and the vision is a lot bigger now.
Hey guys,Name's Darren, and I'm 22. Just graduated from the University of Colorado
Chad Sexton (tight, tight, tight rudiment based drumming in a mainstream setting, love Chad)
Hi, Darren, welcome to the forum. Bart and I were up in your neck of the woods just last summer doing a recording with Doug Walter, who teaches percussion at Ski U. Boulder is a very cool town.You probably know this, but Chad got his chops marching snare in drum and bugle corps. I was the Percussion Caption Head of the Railmen in Omaha, Nebraska, when Chad was in the snare line. He went from us to a DCI finalist corps, the Sky Ryders.- Larry
That's so sick. What was he like when he was marching for you guys? Was he just a normal old snare drummer (well compared to the others in the line, you can hardly call those guys "normal"), or did he stand out in any way?Btw, given your experience I'm sure I'll be bouncing many ideas off you / asking for your advice in the future!!!
...and live in southern Utah.
Some of my favorite drummers are ... Billy Ward ...
