    For those players who want an authentic old time banjo sound and understand the idea of a fretless instrument, this one is for you.If you enjoy playing the weissenborn you're already playing fretless.
    Fretless banjo. What is the fretless banjo (and why you might want one)?

    He said even seasoned banjo players come in and are humbled by a fretless. And that it's useless beyond the 5th fret. But I'm not particularly.I don't know how I am going to set my Reiter aside as I love this banjo to pieces.

    The fretless is capable of a lot more than one might think. It is not at all a primitive or rudimentary instrument. It is capable of many things.Flagship Series.

    The fretless banjo does not use the fret wires; instead a solid wood fret board or fingerboard is used and the player simply moves her fingers.Of course not.

    This banjo was made by Kyle Creed in Galax, Virginia around It has 16 brackets and a fingerboard covered with formica veneer.Brad Leftwich's transcriptions are great, especially when he does different players' takes on the same tune.

    Using light-gauge strings on the fretless banjo will aid in the longevity of the neck.

    The fiddle is different because it pretty much dictates which finger you use for which note, while on longer instruments I find it more flexible.

    Second, some tunes employ lot's of slides on the third to fourth fret, slides allow for some inexactness; but you can use that to better learn where the note should be.

    Secondly, you've got to develop and ear for when you've fretted to the right pitch.

    This fine grained, dense, extremely hard, wood creates a stable neck, and imparts a bright, crisp quality to the Goodtime banjo tone.

    In fairness to the banjo tech he probably watches lots of talented people come in and pick it up and not get a pleasing sound out of it after many minutes of trying.

    Seriously, with your experience in music, I can't imagine it will be terribly challenging.

    I've found two techniques useful, though I'm by no means decent on fretless.
