How not to look like an idjeet when playing "ALL RIGHT NOW" from FREE

I went to see a mate playing last month, and in their setlist they play "All Right Now" by FREE, during the guitar solo the bass plays this riff where you are rushing up and down the neck from the top to the dusty end to play 17th / 19th fret 16th / 19th frets, right?

Well I haven't played that number in ages although I just remembered the way in which I used to approach it slightly differently and with economy in mind, by playing the whole thing up the 2nd position between frets 4 to 7.

Here is how I do it:

The numbers below are the frets that you press and the relevant strings

as many times as required

E string = 5 / 5 / 5 / B string = 5 / 7 / E string = 5 / 5 / B string = 7 / 5 / Now the harmonics = / 5th fret G string / 5th fret D string / 4th freth D string / 5th fret D string

E string = 5 / 5 / 5 / B string = 5 / 7 / E string = 5 / 5 / B string = 7 / 5 / Now the harmonics = / 5th fret G string / 5th fret D string / 4th freth D string / 5th fret D string

E string = 5 / 5 / 5 / B string = 5 / 7 / E string = 5 / 5 / B string = 7 / 5 / Now the harmonics = / 5th fret G string / 5th fret D string / 4th freth D string / 5th fret D string

Simples!

Try it with a chorus and a compressors and those harmonics will ring much better than the fretted notes and at the same pitch as the notes you would play up the 17th and 19th fret without you having to jump up and down the neck like an idjeet! LOL :) :)
