All Right Now Guitar Lesson – Free
In this All Right Now guitar lesson video, I will show you all of the classic chords, riffs and solos from this massive hit by Free.
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!

Hi Carl, that was the most authentic lesson on this old classic, considering all the overdubs on the original track. Brilliant lessons and songs on your site, I am proud to be a premium member. Please could you do Shot in the dark by Ozzy, Struggling with this one on my own.
Hey Ted, thanks a bunch for the kind comment. You know, for some reason I was thinking I had already done “Shot In The Dark”. haha I guess it turns out that I haven’t. It is hard to keep track sometimes. 🙂
I will definitely put it on my to do list.
Thanks again! Carl..
