I looking for some tips on how to get an appropriate tone from my P-Bass Deluxe for Thin Lizzy songs. What I don’t want to do is to attempt to copy Phil Lynott’s tone, I don’t use a pick playing these songs so I need a up-front tone from the pickups and the amp. The basslines for most of the Lizzy songs are quite busy and rarely just sit on the root. The P-pup on the P-Bass is too deep with fingers to cut through (sure it works great with a pick), that leaves the mid-position or the J-pup in the bridge position. Then there’s the amp, I’m playing through a 100W Fender Bassman, no gain control on this one. What about putting a Boss SD-1 in front of the amp? So what I need is for any of you guys out there who do this sort of thing (Hard Rock), with my sort of kit, to point me in the right direction.
