Watch the Fretless Bass Foundations online guitar lesson by Tony Franklin from Fretless Bass Foundations
Hi, I'm Tony Franklin. Welcome to Fretless Bass Foundations!
For me, Fretless bass takes the fretted bass to a whole different level of expressions, nuances, sounds, and creative possibilities. I liken the fretless to the human voice, with all it's subtleties of expressions. I started off on the fretted bass, and then was drawn to the fretless after hearing Jaco Pastorius! This course will help to develop the skills and the foundations to be able to use fretless in any situation, whatever the style.
This course and the included exercises are designed to provide you with a rock solid foundation for using fretless bass, in any musical situation, from hard rock and pop, to funk and orchestral.
All 22 of the exercises are tabbed and notated and you'll also have the rhythm tracks so you can work on your intonation, technique, and most importantly your ear. You can loop and slow down the videos to work at your own pace. Grab your fretless and lets get started!
