    I must be retarded, then. I learned quite a lot from it, just starting out on fretless, ten years ago.

    I've got Fretless Bass with Tony Franklin - he's a bit off the wall but the instruction is OK.

    It's not so much how to do clever complicated licks, more so the nuts and bolts of how to go about fretless playing.

    It cost $15 if I remember rightly - a worthwhile video IMO

    I'm not saying you can't learn anything from it, but he doesn't actually teach anything specific to the fretless. He plays that one segment where he doubles over the fretted part he played earlier, and then he plays continuum.
     
  10. Bailey (cant think of his first name haha!) has a fretless video

  15. Yeah well Bailey plays fretless, but does he has a video/dvd instructional dvd? I just need to know some titles of instructional video's/dvd's which are about playing fretless.
    Thanks for the help so far :)
    I don't know which bass Bailey uses, sorry
