34 I have to remind myself of this one ocasionally. On a fretted bass, it's a common technique in lower registers to pull on the string of a note in the left hand to get a subtle vibrato or pitch movement out of a note. This is a definite no-no on a fretless. You'll be grinding a metal string sideways across an epoxy-coated or possibly bare wooden fingerboard. Eventually the metal will grind away some epoxy or wood, and the useful lifespan of your fingerboard will be compromised. You can get the same kind of pitch movement by moving your finger parallel to the string, and it causes little if no wear on the fingerboard.

Loosening the truss rod If the truss rod adjustment is located at the headstock, you may need to loosen and move a string out of the way. Important! Turn the trust rod adjustment counter-clockwise only 1/4 turn. You should be able to see a difference after a quarter turn . If not, try a little more, but I'd recommend no more than a half a turn per day. Wooden necks require time to "settle in" to truss rod adjustments. Tightening the truss rod Tightening is a little more complicated. Before you turn the wrench, you need to "help" straighten the neck a little.

Retract the screw back up into the saddle exactly three turns. This will maintain whatever adjustments you've made but insure the LocTite is in contact with the threads and the inside of the saddle. If you really don't want to use the LocTite, you can physically hold the saddle against the bridge whenever you pull a string through, and this will help keep the saddle screws in place. Just make sure you only change one string at a time. 35 OK, you're not grounded. But here's the rule: Do not watch TV while you run your scales and arpeggios and call it practicing.
