I've been given some Thin Lizzy songs to incorporate into a set list, (namely, "Boys Are Back in Town" and "Jailbreak"). Unfortunately, the recordings I've been given to learn from are poor quality and recording tech at the time of those recordings wasn't what it is today. So my problem is - it's very hard to comp Lynott somewhat faithfully because the bass just seems to disappear into the track. It sounds like the engineer just squooshed the bass and brought up the guitars so often. What I'm asking is; - Was Phil Lynott a very "busy" bassist or did he tend to keep it simple, (maybe because he was doing vocals)??? I suspect that I may be overplaying in the parts where the bass is pretty much inaudible. - Was his "real" tone very trebly, clear, and punchy, or, did you find his tone to be deep, round, and dirty??? Thanks for any insights on his style, phrasing, tone, whatever. Unfortunately, Lizzy didn't get to tour the States much, nationally, due to Lynott's untimely death.
