The Kinks - You Really Got Me

Here's how to play 'You Really Got Me' by The Kinks!

Quick word on the tuning. See a live video further down this page where they clearly play F to G for the main riff (first fret power chord to third fret power chord). However, the original recording sounds a little higher than this, so you may want to move everything up 1 fret to be in tune with that! 


Live recording going F to G for the main riff.


This is the official audio recording, which sounds closer to going F# to G# to my ears!
