    As I nowadays have fretless(w/ lines, yea I'm a ?edit: language :() as my main(and only) axe, I'm interested what kind of techniques you use when you are playing w/o speed bumps? Does anyone use percussive techniques like slapping, tapping, popping on fretless anyways?

    I think the coolest thing about a fretless is the ability to slide harmonics...if you have not tried it out...just play a G harmonic on the g string and gently slide it up...hours of fun...then you run it through your phrase sampler and play it backwards and it sounds really cool...yes I am a dork
