It does have dots on the side, but you would sound pretty bad if you tried to play it without using your ears.
Great playing, Govan sounds great live, not so fond of his recorded work. He's a little too much into perfection, for me that kills many of his songs. They all sound too polished after a few years in a studio. For fretless guitar, I still prefer Bumblefoot as he's a bit (at least so far) more creative.
