  12. Fantastic lesson.

  13. Hi from France.Thanks ! Great lesson again ! I'm trying to play "The Pressure Will Blow" from Lizzy too, but I got some mistakes…what about a lesson of this tune ?…

  14. Wow! I want to practice that rising harmony part and those thirds just by themselves. I think that would make a great exercise.

  15. True. So many good songs by Thin Lizzy and most only know the 'Boys' song. The LP Chinatown is worth a listen. The Thin Lizzy bio is they were befell by stupid bad luck to where they never reached the peak of fame they so deserved.

  16. Your lessons are always so precise and thorough. You are by far my favorite sub scribed utube teacher. Thanks for this lesson. I've heard that song for over 30 years and I've never really listened to it till I just played it now I like it even more

  17. Awesome tutorial!

  18. Great lesson. Fun, energetic song that'll be easy to remember once I can get it down. Thank you.

    I think you explained some of the magic of this awesome tune … off then on .. indeed
