There's a Thin Lizzy song that gets me every time, and that's, 'I'm Still In Love With You'. My favourite version is from their, 'Live And Dangerous' album and this has a distinctly different feel from the album version.


The bass line is so great on this live version, and there's a really interesting funky section at the end of the tune.


if you aren't that familiar with Thin Lizzy, this is a good song to check out. Phil Lynott is the bass player and the lead vocalist and it's pretty incredible to hear him do justice to both role simultaneously!


In my latest YouTube video, I break down this bass line and show you how to play it. It's fairly simple for some sections but the articulation is very important, including lots of little slides that add character to this bass line.


if you want to really replicate Phil Lynott's tone, you can use a pick, but fingerstyle also sounds good as the click of the pick is not that prominent on this recording.


I’ve made a full transcription of the bass line in notation and Tab. You’ll find the link under the video lesson. 


Enjoy this classic Thin Lizzy bass line!
