The 3 Most Common Fretless Bass Mistakes

in Technique

Ok, so let's talk about fretless bass... because yes, it's awesome, but there are some extremely common mistakes that many bass players make.

You've likely heard players such as Pino Palladino, Kai Eckhardt, Michael Manring and Jaco Pastorius... and felt that you wanted to unleash your inner fretless player... if so, you're in the right place!

In this lesson you're going to learn why bass players struggle with intonation on the fretless (it's not what you think), why vibrato is a big problem area, and way more...

And... yep, there's even more...

I'm also giving away the Ibanez Gary Willis fretless signature bass I'm using in this new video... and, it's been used and set-up by Gary Willis himself!
