You were close with your guess but not quite right: I'm his bass teacher. See also here www.basskurs.de
but beware it's all in German.
Those CDs are not
about bass playing but about the development of a certain genre and its sub-genres. I give to him the bass lines of well-known rock songs to play (according to his abilities at that time) and I think about designing a CD with all the famous bass players that shows the evolution of bass playing (John Entwistle, Chris Squire etc.). But that's a project on its own.
I've been a big Kinks fan for many, many years. But I must say that I've never paid much attention to Dave Davies' guitar playing probably because he's usually not respected as a great guitarist. (There are even rumours that the interesting guitar parts on the early records were played by Jimmy Page.) But of course you are right. The song "Yes Sir, no Sir" is another very good illustration of the style you describe.
It's very well possible that I put a Kinks song on the final CD although I haven't decided that yet for sure. But what you say sounds convincing ...
