    Hello everyone...

    What is the best fretless bass method book in the scene, can anyone recommend anything?

    I want to switch from fretted bass to fretless and I need something good to work with as a study book.

    There is no reason to go by a strictly fretless book. The notes don't change, the way bass lines and harmony work don't change. All you need to do is discipline the positioning of your left hand.

    well a legato slide sound different from a fretted bass, you can slide harmonics, you can add a classical vibrato and you have to work on your intonation.

    Otherwise it is the same thing as a fretted bass
