The Kinks are one of Britain's most enduring and influential groups, combining the lyrical genius of Ray Davies with hook-laden guitar lines of brother Dave to create some of rock's best-loved anthems. Classic numbers such as 'You Really Got Me' marked The Kinks as true originals, pioneering the heavy metal and garage band sound.

This guitar workshop is a powerful learning tool that will help you extend your stockpile of licks and fills and develop your improvisational skills. The combination of musical notation and guitar tablature in this book together with backing tracks on the CD gives you the opportunity to learn eight of The Kinks' tracks note for note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of The Kinks' most popular recordings, providing something for guitarists to have fun with and improvise with, as well as something to aspire to.

The first eight tracks on the CD are full length backing tracks recorded minus lead guitar. The remaining tracks feature the backing tracks with the lead guitar added. Although many of you will have all the original tracks in your own collection, we have provided them in the package for your reference. The 'JAM WITH...' series allows you to accurately recreate the original, or to use the transcriptions in this book in conjunction with the backing tracks as a basis for your own improvisation.
