Tout ce que fait pierre bensusan est génial. C'est un guitariste hors pair. C'est un livre qui regroupe des partitions, des textes et des exercices. Un excellent livre pour les amateurs de guitare. J'ai adoré et j'en redemande.

The key to DADGAD 8 juin 2008
Par Paul Magnussen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
Pierre Bensusan is a musician's musician. The first time I saw him (which was in 1977 at a folk festival in the little village of Hoeilaart in Belgium), I was so knocked out I bought his first two albums on the spot.

Since then, of course, he has become world-famous, expanding his musical vocabulary all the while.

The pieces in this 1985 book, however, are all drawn from that earlier time, before the effects pedals and so forth, when his main influences were easily discernible to be the notable guitarists of the English folk revival; particularly John Renbourn, Nic Jones and Martin Carthy.


Along with scales and exercises there are 35 tunes, as follows. All are in DADGAD tuning except where otherwise indicated.

The Return from Fingal
Le voyage pour l'Irlande
Rakish Paddy
Le lendemain de la fête (EADGBE)
Près de Paris (FGDGCF)
The Ash Plant (FGDGCF)
The Morning Dew (FGDGCF)
La danse du capricorne
De Trilport à Fublaines (DGDGCD)
Heman Dubh
Maurice au pays des merveilles
Clementine, Mandarine et Reine Claude
Merrily Kiss the Quaker
Murtagh McKann
The Pure Drop
The Flax in Bloom
Le moulin á parfums d'Emmanuelle
Water Music
Le voyage pour l'Irlande (EADGBE)
Le lac des abbesses (DGDGCD)
The False Knight on the Road
Climats doux et tempéres
Suite flamande aus pommes
La marche du sonneur égaré
Sí Bheag, Sí Mhor
Santa Monica
Au jardin d'amour
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Nice Feeling
Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum (CADGAD)

Most are from Pierre's first four albums:

7 from Près de Paris
5 from 2
11 from Musiques
6 from Solilaï
6 miscellaneous

The pieces are arranged in order of difficulty (it's noticeable that all those from Solilaï come at the end).

As well as the above, there are recipes, advice, photos, poems from the author's wife, and much more. In fact it's not so much a music book as a total brain dump.


The transcriptions are, by and large, very accurate, but there are nonetheless some curious anomalies.

One is that "Le lendemain de la fête", given in standard tuning, was recorded by Pierre in DADGAD, and is given in that tuning on his DVD The Guitar of Pierre Bensusan, Vol. 1. It's certainly playable as written, but it doesn't sound quite right. What the explanation may be for this, I can only conjecture. However, "Le voyage pour l'Irlande", is given twice here, once in each tuning; so maybe it's just that Pierre plays (or has played) these pieces both ways.

Most annoying, however, is that the staff notation is written at absolute pitch, even when a capo is used, e.g. "Le lac des abbesses" in G capo'd at 4 is written in B. This makes the staff impossible to read without reference to to the tab, for the 15 pieces in which a capo is specified.

The key signature of "La marche du sonneur égaré" should be one sharp, not two; since although the key is D, the mode is mixolydian, and so the Cs are natural (as confirmed by the tab). However, there is the occasional C#, so, again, you have to check both the staff and the tab.


The book is conventionally bound and does not take kindly to being opened flat. My copy (about 20 years old) is falling apart. (Update 2010: I see that this has now apparently been fixed; but watch out if you buy an old copy second hand.)

BTW, in common with other books produced in Latin countries, the Table of Contents is at the end, not the beginning.


This is one of the greatest guitar books I've ever come across, so much so that even the quirks mentioned above can't lead me to deduct a star. It's certainly THE greatest book on DADGAD, although Pierre Bensusan presents DADGAD Guitar comes close.

But it's not for beginners, nor for flatpickers. Also, if you can't read you may have trouble, especially if you don't have the author's first four CDs. In that case, or if you learn better visually, I would recommend the DVD mentioned above, along with Vol. 2. Both come with tab booklets.

Not your ordinary guitar book...this is THE Guitar Book!! 13 août 1998
Par "rootwitch" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
Pierre is not only one of the most extraordinary acoustic guitar players in the world, but a lot more. The Guitar Book is the living proof that Pierre is also an skilled writer, capable of sharing his own "little world", as he calls it, so that the reader is able to immerse himself in Pierre's playing style, musical visions, and even venture into some more, uh, sensorial stuff. The book provides not only insights on his playing techniques, immaculate transcriptions of tunes from his first 4 albums and the Mechanics of Guitar according to Bensusan, but also some poems, evocative photographs, paintings and even recipes!! This is as deep as you can get into an artists personal world, done in the irreprehensible Bensusan style. A MUST-BUY!!

Unique Work of Art! 2 janvier 2002
Par jdwyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
Pierre Bensusan's "Guitar Book" is simply one of the best guitar books ever published. Virtually all of the pieces from his first 4 recordings are transcribed in very accessible format. All in tablature, mostly his preferred DADGAD tuning. In general, the pieces are arranged from easiest to most difficult, and most are accessible for an intermediate player. If it were just about the transcriptions, this would certainly be an extraordinary work. However, the "extras" take it to another level. Poetry, art, cooking recipes fill in along with some of his thoughts about playing the guitar. This work is truly distinguished from other guitar publications. Obviously, this book is not for a mass audience, but if you like Pierre Bensusan and play the guitar, you simply MUST have this.

A great find 9 mars 2006
Par M. Bradley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
This book is a great find for acoustic guitarists looking to stretch their fingerstyle playing as well as learn about alternate tunings. Pierre Bensusan's playing is phenomenal, and if you can keep up with any of the tunes transcribed (I wish I could!) in this book, then you're really doing something. This book has all the songs from his early records, plus poems, pictures, even recipes. It's excellent.

A masterful work. Thorough, and truly Renaissance in its approach! 18 mars 2010
Par Kevin W. Coombs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
Like Pierre, I am self-taught. I went on to study formally and majored in classical guitar. I believe it is imperative to learn the proper body mechanics and master classical form before delving into this book. Even those beginners who are deeply inspired by Pierre Bensusan's mastery may find themselves overwhelmed at first. However, Pierre is quite clear that this is NOT a beginner's method book. It IS an amazing study for those who are already dedicated to the study and love of the sound of the instrument. In short, this book is a joy for the guitarist who has already attained a certain level of skill and wishes to either "refresh" his chops and/or imbibe in new modalities. The arpeggio studies sound almost as beautiful as many of the compositions!
"The Guitar Book" is an adventure for the serious musician whose choice instrument happens to be the guitar. Every page seems to pull together the fact that art is art is art. The American eye may view this book as somewhat "eccentric" with its wanderings away from music, particularly the guitar into other genres of art. In a true European tradition, the arts are inseperable. Whether it be music, painting, poetry, cooking....this is a true Renaissance work. If one has reached an artistic level of maturity and understanding that music/guitar is simply ONE channel of expression, The Guitar Book makes perfect sense. Perhaps this is another reason why one must understand what art IS as well as just "music". Thus the mere guitarist becomes a musician who then becomes an "artist".
The Guitar Book is a beautiful work and a joy to read. His finger exercises are well-studied and based upon anatomical factors. Pierre's transcriptions are bare-bones, yet the experienced ear can tell that he is manipulating bass lines and accents to his liking at any given point. Again, learning to improvise bass lines, etc. gives on a freedom to deviate from the written script. That freedom IS the art and personal expression of music!
I have seldom come across a music study that is so intent on expressing what it means to be an ARTIST as well as simply a better guitar player. Pierre's book is a wonderful supplement for those who want to move even further into the seemingly infinite possibilities the guitar wishes to afford us.
