Giants of Bass – Michael Manring

This track was written to represent virtuoso bassist Michael Manring, an artist who has always been very successful in combining multiple techniques into one seamless performance. This is one of the main challenges with this piece. Although Michael’s extensive use of multiple tunings is not reflected here (something that would be very difficult to achieve without a Zon Hyperbass) this piece nevertheless contains many of the techniques that he commonly uses, such as palm muting, slapping, strumming and two handed tapping.
