I’m by no means an expert on fretless bass as I’ve only been playing a few years fretless. This video is for beginners or any bass player wondering about fretless and the slight differences in dot layout between a fretlined fretless bass and a plainboard fretless. Yes, the dots along the side of the neck are in a DIFFERENT place on a fretlined fretless compared to a plain fretboard fretless. On a plainboard, you play centered exactly over the dot to get a true note. If you play over the dot on a fretlined fretless, you will be totally out of tune … :P If you’re considering getting a fretless, I recommend it, the transition from fretted to fretless isn’t as hard as you might think IMO, they’re a lot of fun and easier on the fingers if you use flatwounds.

I played Fender fretless for years and then I bought a lined Carvin two years ago and it was different for a while.

pudsy440: has any other member here noticed that playbassnow loads faster than it used to?? I'm finding it much faster lately, I haven't changed anything computer wise. Just curious. :)

MarloweDK: Well, i use different fx depending on the gig,and sometimes nothing at all. You can get far with just a octaver and autowah. Maybe add a fuzz/distortion of some kind

niftywiz: Sir..plz advice me a Effects processor for Live performance.

Mr Tibbs: WAZZUP Marlowe DK, Awesome Job with Larry Graham and the others...Keep Doin Your Thing Brutha!!!:-)

brainlock1: Hey Marlowedk, I don't know how I missed the Larry Graham meeting that you had back earlier in the year, (both the interview and actually playing his bass onstage) but I just wanted to say congratulations! I could see how much respect he has for you and what an honor it was to see that come to fruition! Thanks for all you do... Cheers. Bryan in Kentucky

MarloweDK: Finn: Its hard to find good Band in a box patterns, i usually just use the "Funk 70s style". Ill think about tutorials. In the mean time guest teacher Paul Wolfe has done some

soporific: Thnx @jazzperdk. That's an amazing video and Mr DK is the main basscat:-)

Finn: Hey Thomas, I just downloaded Band in a Box, and I'm having a little trouble making a good backing track, could you possibly do a tutorial, or maybe link me one that you found helpful? I also had some questions regarding tetrachords, is there a way I could message you about them? Thanks, Finn

Rain-baud: Sébu's still working on his website, this url works better (the first one is a dead link now)
