    I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'm still rather unfamiliar with fretless basses as a whole.
    I was wondering, how does playing a fretless bass differ from a fretted bass, if at all?
  2. Use the search function to find in-depth answers. Briefly, though, fretless is just like fretted only there are no frets, just a plain board, and you have to fret exactly on the node. Tone-wise, it's a whole different ball-game. The best way to see is to actually play one.
