  1. ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok........
    " the most important thing to remember with fretless technique is...
    "don't play too hard!!!" "

    and...
    "once you get the MWAH, you're doin' it right"

    well, i can't get the MWAH unless i LAY INTO IT!!!!!!!! (play hard)"

    either i will learn the truth and be happy, or i will kill myself.:( :( :(

    Mwha factors:

    • low action
    • minimal neck relief
    • (classical) finger vibrato (rolling the finger)

    It helps to pluck near the neck pickup
