All-Right-Now-Guitar-Tab how to playI know the band Bad Company and Queen, but honestly I never heard of the band “Free“.

Today’s post is called “All Right Now“. This is a very catchy tune with a very memorable guitar riff.

There is something about this riff that I heard before I just can’t remember. Anyway let’s learn how to play Free’s All Right Now.

This classic riff from the 1970s is based on 3 open chords played on the first position of the neck.

The first chord is A major, a rather conventional chord.

The second two are very nice sounding yet not so conventional chords. Pay attention to the fingering explanations above the chord diagrams.

The third chord is the same as the second, only you lift your index finger off the 2nd fret on the G string and let the open string ring out.

The song uses the I, IV, V chord pattern on the key of A (A Major). So overall, this is a newbie, easy song on a guitar.

The song starts with a quarter note time for the A major chord followed by a quarter and and 8th rest (?) followed by an open A note on the A string before strumming a partial D major chord – forth finger on the forth fret of the 4 string, 1st finger on the second fret (A note) and the second finger on the third fret of the second string.
