I've just started experimenting with playing the bass in complete darkness. To me it makes a big difference, one that I could notice right away. It forces you to hear notes instead of look at frets. Anyway, I was wondering if this could be considered a good way to prepare for purchasing and playing your first fretlass bass. Is it as similar as I'm thinking? Is it even helpful? I'll keep doing it anyway if it's not because it still helps to hear notes, but I don't want to get my hopes up about it improving my entry-level fretless playing. So, whatdya think?
