Comments about Hal Leonard Fretless Bass Method (Book/Online Audio):
In my opinion there are hardly enough Fretless-only Bass Instructional Books on the market, so picking up this little gem of a combination theory/fretless bass song tabulature books. It's structured with the basics of fretless playing at the beginning, then with song, player & style-specific techniques matched to the fretless bass song in both conventional notation and tablature.
I've been playing fretless for a good while now and taking it "seriously" for the last 7 years, enough to upgrade from a quality Yamaha Bass that I defretted at home to have a Spector Euro Bolt-On 5 DLX FM custom-built, and then modified with my choice of Pickups & Electronics (custom EMG-40 shelled Nordstrand "Big Single" Pups with an Aguilar OBP-3SK/PP Preamp and an Epoxy-coated Fingerboard by HG Thor, one of the top fretless conversion and epoxy coating specialists out there) once I was comfortable in my technique and feeling that I was going to remain a fretless player. Even so, the variety of songs and styles of music represented in the book was a very nice "brush-up" on so techniques as well as styles of music that I rarely play, and for that alone it was worth the cost.
