    As I was looking for 321 techniques on Youtube I clicked on some Alex Webster video tips. Great stuff (even if I miles away from being a Cannibal Corpse/death metal fan, I have huge respect for some of the guys' skills).

    THEN...clicked on some recommended links (best Death metal bass players) and found out about Jeroen Paul Thesseling.

    What a beast...then I ended up checking one of his project..

    Bastard...now i am GASSING for a fretless!!!

    Thesseling is a beast. Probably some of the most in depth fretless playing I've ever heard, when you pay close attention you hear that his lines are full of the tiniest details of utilizing micro-tonal intonations. It's a rare level of craft.
