Once in a while (and as a Jaco addict too) I am beginning to think that a fretless bass could be perhaps my main-style bass. I personally think my technique won't give any problems playing the fretless bass, but I think more now of the context of the band I play in. There are a lot of moments in the song, where I really could need the fretless sound. We make songs which are subtile and intimate in-your-face, but sometimes very powerfull 'in a rocking way of speaking'. Sometimes I slap, but most of the time (about 98% or so) I use groovy fingerstyle. I was wondering if the fretless bass could give me comfort in my needs. I was wondering anyone thought of this him/herself and if you swapped basses, how was it in the beginning...do you miss it...etc...? Thanks!
