This book features the art of the fretless bass from superstars and beyond. Who would have thoughts the electric bass guitar with its frets removed would transcend the rhythm section to become one of the most instantly recognizable sounds in all of music? From the jazz genius of Jaco Pastorius and the funk/punk abandon of Les Claypool to the landmark rock of Jack Bruce and Sting the instrument has a lyrical legacy all its own. This book/DVD pack collects the very best interviews, lessons, and gear and maintenance guides into one smooth-reading compilation. With insight from over 25 masters including Tony Levin, Marcus Miller, Gary Willis, Richard Bona, Jimmy Haslip, and Percy Jones "The Fretless Bass" will give you a keen appreciation for the important innovators as well as plenty of tools to find your own voice on the instrument.
