How can I slap on a fretless bass?
the same like on fretedd?
There`s no difference whatsoever. It just sounds a bit more quirky. Here`s a good example from my younger days when i got my first band together . Pretty Primus\Steve Vai orientated : http://s52.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1PR41AYIPQPUY3HC7V3ELVYQXL
i heard somewhere that slapping on a fretless kills the fretboard, but it looks like everyone does it so maybe its not such a problem
It depends on the finish of the fingerboard.
exactly. my fretless is made of ebony (pretty durable) so it wouldn't be a problem.. but fretless basses aren't made to be slapped so i wouldn't recommend it.
Ebony is a very very hard wood
Im not sure if i can slap on my fretless,my fretboard made from rosewood..
If you slap correctly, you can slap on anything and you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
Go ahead slap on a fretless people do it all the time, it will not soudn or feel the same but if you like it go with it
