The Bass Freq’s Podcast, hosted by experienced recording and touring bass player Josh Paul (Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves, Daughtry), features in-depth discussions with some of the top bassists working today. 

This week, we’re joined by John Myung, a bass player whose high-school friendship with one John Petrucci would lead to the formation of one of the most successful and long-running prog metal bands of all time—Dream Theater. 

Speaking with Josh, John tells us all about the band’s origins at the Berklee College of Music, his discovery of the 6-string bass, how he constructs his bass lines to fit into the group’s intricate symphonies, and more.
