Guitarist Paul Kossoff has a couple of great solos in this one and I will take you through each one of them note-for-note.
The opening riff to "All Right Now" is probably one of the most recognizable in the history of classic rock. It requires are pretty large fret-hand stretch in order to finger the chords just like Paul Kossoff did, and in addition the rhythm is very tight. It is a great riff to practice playing in the pocket.
The chorus is a very simple laid back riff based around a couple of power chords, so there shouldn't be much of an issue there.
After those two riffs are out of the way, it is time to tackle the guitar solos. Paul Kossoff's first solo in "All Right Now" is very blues based with some quick picking and large bends. It is very short but very succinct and in your face so to speak.
After that we will tackle the second guitar solo. This solo is much longer and incorporates melodic slides, oblique bends, fast legato licks and more. You can really study this solo to see how Paul Kossoff tells a story with it. There is a definitely beginning that gradually builds throughout. It perfectly complements this much loved song.
Hope you guys enjoy this great classic from Free!
