        Very little info on fretless technique - it does say "fundamentals" in the title, but doesn't actually say how to, eg do a vibrato, tune up, adjust intonation, etc. It doesn't bother me, because I've played only fretless since '76, but if I'd just changed over from fretted, there's nothing in here to really help, apart from exercises you could get from any book. There are, however, some nice bits to pinch, which is why I've kept the book. Plus Bunny Brunel is so good on the CD it makes you sick!
