Jean Dumas

I play guitar, bass, and a little bit of piano, but I mainly only post guitar. I mostly cover songs I like, but some of my stuff is original.

The Trashmaster, a jazzmaster body, stratocaster neck, a Seymour Duncan JB and single coil wired together with no switch.  I was originally going for a Gretsch humbucker, but changed my mind last minute.  The action is at unusable heights and the hum is not bucked in the slightest.  It will take lots of work before this is playable.

"Laminated Effect" by Fecal Matter.  Happy 50th birthday to one of my biggest influences as a musician and person, Kurt Cobain.  It's hard to imagine what I would be doing right now if not for you.  I don't think I would have ever picked up a guitar, and I certainly wouldn't be as satisfied in my life.  I've had a lot of great memories listening to Nirvana, and your own musical tastes have led me to discover even more music that I love.  Wish you were here!

I've decided to try some new content for this account, so, in addition to my normal posting schedule, I will do a spotlight once a week.  This week's band is Marquee Moon, who were a post-punk/goth rock act formed out of Berlin in 1984.  They released four LPs as well as 5 singles and EPs before their disbandment in 1997.

Favorite song: Don't Go Out Tonight
Favorite album: Angst + War

"Strange Things" by Big Black.  Love is a strange thing.  I have no idea how to get a good distorted bass tone.  Don't catch VD on VD.  Happy Valentine's Day.

"A Song for the Dead" by Queens of the Stone Age.  Those high licks were sloppy, but the rest sounded good.

"Psychic Hearts" by Thurston Moore, off of the album of the same name.  I really like the song, but playing it feels empty because I can't sing and play at the same time.

"Sometimes" by My Bloody Valentine, off of Loveless.  Done with some behind the bridge strumming in the beginning.  Probably my favorite My Bloody Valentine song.
