Yes this is the simplest and most classical way of doing it, but you end up with the rope above the boom. When uphauling or using the harness a lot the connection can get loose after a while. If you do it the opposite way, the rope below the boom will hold the head firmly against the mast. With this system I never experienced a slippery boom, which happens sometimes also with a clamp, either maladjusted or used.
