“David, the electric bass is not a valid instrument…” David C. Gross and guest Michael Manring discuss their time at Berklee and the bold proclamation which forever affected Mr. Gross , how Manring straddles the “pre-Jaco and post-Jaco eras,” Michael’s tuning methodology, and how Joseph Zon helped bring Michael’s aural visions to fruition. This video clip is from a February 2021 episode of The Bass Guitar Channel Radio Show on Cygnus Radio, hosted by David C. Gross with Know Your Bass Player “honcho” Tom Semioli.
