: Thanks for the help, but I don't think that I explained my problem very well.

: I'm pretty sure that timing isn't the problem, although I am having to work on that.

: What I meant was that my first finger makes a certain sound and my second finger makes a heavier sound, so when I play (even with good timing) the notes alternate, i.e. soft, heavy, soft, heavy, soft, heavy, etc.

: I've found that when I play with that Phyll Lynott style rhythm it isn't so noticable, but my repetoire extends beyond Thin Lizzy !

: Sorry for not making myself clear the first time.
: Adam

It helps me to isolate these things. sit and play that way at a medium tempo and listen very closely to the volume of each finger and adjust them to march each other. play the quiet one a bit louder and the loud one a bit softer. play with one finger for 8 notes and then the other for 8 and try to match the volumes. it's a matter of touch find your dynamic range. find out how loud you can play and how quiet. get to know your paramters so you can find your place in there.
