I don't know much about bass. In fact, while browsing these forums I'll reading about setting intonation or lower the action and not really know what they'll be talking about. I could probably just search to find out, but I guess I'm just horribly lazy. ::shrugs:: Anyway, I always see people talk about their fretless, and it sounds like they sound so much better or are capable of more than a fretted bass. Now, the only bass I own is a pretty generic Crate that I got in a pack to start learning on, so I don't know a whole lot about different kinds of basses. So my main question here is, what kind of things could I do on a fretless that I couldn't do on a fretted. Now, I don't know if I'd ever play on a fretless, being as about all the kids I know would be more interested in starting a rock band than a jazz band, and I'd just assume fretless isn't really for punk-y music. Although I didn't just pick up bass to play for a little while and give up on. It's something I'd like to do my whole life, and experiment with a lot of different kinds of things. And so I figured if I didn't know about something now, why not ask some people who have been playing for a while.
