Instead of playing from the low Bb string all the way to the Ab String you can just play on the Eb on higher frets i.e. 7 & 8 on Eb instead of 2 & 3 on Ab

You're probably right on the main riff, but the faster parts in the solo and the ending I would suggest skipping the Eb string to avoid moving your hand position too much.
