Interview – Josquin des Pres

I am not as much of a bass acrobat as some fretless players are… Since I am a pop music producer and player I focus more on bringing out the tone and melodic possibilities of this amazing instrument. Are you still actively playing fretless bass? Do you have any basic advice for bass players looking to take up fretless or those who are currently playing? Practice groove, melody and intonation.

I used to have a very effective yet unconventional practice method… I used to sit in front of TV and play melodies to movie soundtracks for hours, it helped my melodic approach and intonation tremendously. Do you have websites or social media sites you would like to share?
