I am also looking for advice on learning fretless. My 4 string techniques are fairly well developed, but I recenlty bought a 5 string fretless and looking for good instructional information. I don't read music notation, but can read tabulature. Books, videos and CDs would be helpful, so please advise.
I enjoy playing most styles of pop, some rock, country, blues, and folk. I do listen to jazz, but don't have the harmonic theory skills to play it. My favorite fretless players are Jimmy Johnson (Allan Holdsworth, Flimm & the BBs), Jaco, and Pino Palladino (who now plays fretted bass).
Thanks in advance, Dave Patterson
